As a rising 3rd-year Architecture student at UC Berkeley and my double minors in City and Regional Planning and Sustainable Design, I aim to use architecture and design to address contemporary issues relating to climate change and urbanism. My interest lies on improving the future of sustainable, low-cost residential buildings, particularly through parametric architecture and building technology to achieve Zero-Net-Energy (ZNE) buildings. I am an organized individual with good time-management and teamwork skills, and I am willing to take additional responsibilities to ensure the excellence of project outcomes.
