I offer solutions influenced by modern mobility, mechanical engineering and technology for a dynamic kind of architecture.
I am a fast learning team-player with leadership skills. Having an eye for detail and workability, whilst still achieving the bigger picture.

My expertise is in mobility in architecture; including pedestrian and light mobility circulation and simulation within buildings helping rethink the typologies in the future of architecture.

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Los Angeles, CA, US, MArch, Mobility in Architecture

Mobility in Architecture with Greg Lynn - Conceptualising and understanding the next stage in architecture as light mobility vehicles become an active reality with non-combustive and electrical motors.
A reality where these devices become a part of the circulation and interaction in the building. Challenging the thresholds of accessibility and circulation in Building design.
This is established and expressed in 'agent-based simulation' to understand movement within building envelopes of different speeds and paths.
