I completed my master of Urban Planning degree from College of Architecture, University of Oklahoma (OU) December 2010. I have done my Bachelors in Architecture from India in 2004.

I have considerably strong background in the field of Architecture on both academia as well as professional platforms. I have served OU College of Architecture through a graduate assistant position. With four years of architectural experience, subsequent education in urban planning advanced my research skills and knowledge of built spaces. The coursework at OU aided good opportunity of exploring the various fields in urban planning, such as urban design, historic preservation and community development. My design sense of built spaces from Architecture is useful in my planning projects. Its an additional element for my career.
