I am a recent graduate student from Master of Science in Architecture and Urban Design program in Columbia University. I previously completed a Master of Architecture at Clemson University in South Carolina and a Bachelor of Engineering in Urban Planning at the Tianjin Institute of Urban Construction in China.

As a student of architecture and urban design for many years, I have developed many skills from conceptualizing design ideas digitally to conducting extensive research for many projects to building models. I am currently proficient in Adobe software such as After Effects and Creative Suite; Autodesk software such as Autocad, Maya, and Revit; Rhino; Grasshopper; SketchUp; V-Ray and ArcGIS.
