New Haven, CT
I’m a designer and maker who values inclusion and the environment. Born to a mathematician mother and a landscape architect father, I grew up in Chengdu, China. I’m inspired by my mother’s tenacity to make her own path in a male-dominated field, and I’m influenced by my father’s commitment to the protection of nature in his works.
I choose architecture as a vehicle through which my creativity makes tangible impacts for a better world. My research and design interests range from green building technology, materials, construction to public spaces and urban ecology. Currently I live in New Haven, pursuing my professional masters degree at Yale School of Architecture. I can be found out on my bike or on a run, tinkering things in the wood shop, attempting to care for my garden and plants, and sketching out my newest vegetarian recipes.
