Her work in recent years has focused on social innovation, education, urban placemaking, community urbanism, built environments, behavioral change, and food sustainability on a micro and macro scale. She believes digging deep into how our ancestors lived leads to a resilient future, with a people-planet approach. Her projects attempt to bring poetry into our everyday lives.
She is trained as an Architect and holds a Master's in Industrial Design from Pratt Institute, New York, where she graduated with distinction.
She has worked as a designer at Street Lab, New York, for two years. Street Lab was featured in the New York Times for its active work in transforming the public spaces in the city.
