About 

I have recently graduated from MArch (RIBA Part II) MSc Computing & Design from University of East London.

In addition to my MArch, I studied MSc which has deepened my understanding and knowledge in the use of computation in architecture and in particular scripting and parametric design.I have excellent knowledge of CAD and SketchUp and have been using both softwares for more than 6 years.

For my 5th year project I proposed a regeneration Masterplan for The Nightingale Estate in Hackney. During this project I studied the regulations for residential designs. My project aimed at re introducing the historic routes that existed in the area.
