About 

Throughout my time at RISD, I also have explored adaptive reuse projects focusing on creating narrative spaces that satisfies different user needs. I have chosen a variety of studio projects to challenge myself and prepare for possible work field. Besides, I studied civil engineering in TJU, best school for the major in China in undergraduate, which exposes me to principles of construction, application of materials and further potential structural improvements. 
 
What’s more, the internship being an interior architect in UNNITEDLAB (NYC) last summer offered me an excellent opportunity approaching various interior projects that paid close attention to users’ personalized needs, construction details and current trends. Besides, the wonderful experience of exhibition design I had encourages me to be open to everything that’s possible during design process.
 
Personally, despite of polishing my professional skills, I also pay much attention to improve my ability to communicate with others whenever there’s teamwork during projects. No matter how hard the journey ahead is, I am eager to give all my enthusiasm to future career life and excited to see the work push me further.
