Years of studying and practicing architecture taught me that miscommunication is one of the most serious concerns in the AEC industry. I found my interest at the intersection of design concepts and built reality since I believe that a designer who gains comprehensive knowledge of design and construction can be deemed as an asset to avoid miscommunication between disciplines.

I have recently completed my studies in Master of Architecture and Construction Management from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I am actively looking for a junior architect and VDC/BIM manager position.
