I am a final year Grad Student at U of I, Urbana-Champaign pursuing my Masters in Architecture. My interests majorly lie in exploring the intersection of neurology and psychology with Architecture, analyzing spaces in terms of sensory stimulation, cognition patterns to derive a viable design proposition.My attempt at designing is with an underlying thought process of imbibing meaning to the space. Spaces that heal, connect and communicate along with the idea of keeping it functional, pragmatic and rational.
