I am currently pursuing Master of Urban Design from Carnegie Mellon University.

I have a major in Architecture and two years of experience in the Industry.

My studies and work in the field have been very rewarding as a creative pursuit and many

of my best works have been about the public realm that deal with larger urban contexts.

Therefore, I wanted to gain knowledge about the Urban Design Process and its application

in the Design field. My education in CMU has helped me understand Urban Design through the areas of Planning Process, Community/Neighborhood Revitalization, Public Involvement through Design Charrettes, System Integration and Urban Ecology. In addition to increasing my knowledge base, I have acquired the necessary software skills for large scale mapping/research, data analytics and simulating environmental data into 3d models.
