I'm a 1st-year Master's student in Computational Design at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. My research focuses on software for architecture and design, in particular questioning the computational paradigm embedded in parametric software.

I studied architecture at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation (GSAPP) and have worked as a web developer independently and for various organizations.
