As a third-culture-kid, I have lived in Saudi Arabia, India, Singapore and now the US. Exposure to a multitude of mindsets, cultures and outlooks has been integral in shaping my professional and academic perspectives.

After completing undergraduate studies in Singapore, I worked at an Architectural firm for 7 years working on aviation and healthcare projects. Graduate school has been a refreshing opportunity to pursue additional skills, knowledge and exposure.

I would like to integrate the worlds of human-centered design and Architecture, and believe that our built environment should be reflective of our values and consideration for the end-users/occupants. I am looking for opportunities to pursue this professionally, and am open to learning new perspectives and methodologies, in addition to bringing my own experience to the table.
