Greetings! I'm a passionate architecture designer holding a Master's degree in Architecture (M.Arch) from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) at Columbia University. I also possess a diverse educational background with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture and Sociology from Tsinghua University. My strong skill set includes meticulous analysis, innovative design, and compelling representation.

What drives my career is the deep-seated interest in undertaking real-world projects that enhance living conditions and promote the well-being of individuals and communities. Leveraging my architectural expertise and sociological insight, I aspire to contribute to and shape spaces that positively impact people's lives. I'm excited about the possibilities and opportunities to use architecture as a tool for social betterment.
