A member of PennFIRST, an Integrated Project Delivery team made of architects, engineers and contractors, building a $1.5 billion, 700-bed Patient Pavilion for Penn Medicine, I worked from an active construction for 9 months to assist project architects on various tasks in construction administration. I updated construction drawings and issued RFIs using Revit, managed files and field reports, and helped with on-site and off-site inspections.
I organized and led the concept development phase of HCD Breaking Through Healthcare Design Competition through the production phase. Our proposal Bubbles of Hope are among the finalists. Other involvements included schematic design phase for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Center for Child Well-Being, and construction documentation phase for Schuylkill Yard towers.
Studio Dali Architects
During summer I worked for a small architectural practice based in Dali Ancient Town in the Bai Autonomous County , in Yunnan Province of southeastern China. Mainly I participated in a design proposal for the Rock Hotel to be situated by a large cliff in the Daliang Mountains in the adjacent Sichuan Province.

Monument Lab Digital Scholarship Fellowship
Selected for a University-wide digital scholarship fellowship sponsored by the library, I coded infrastructure for Monument Lab, a national public art and history project based in Philadelphia to critically engage the monuments we have inherited through art exhibitions, participatory projects, a national fellowship program, and a new website and podcast. During workshops and seminars in the fellowship year, I learned and honed skills including mapping, graphic design, data management and visualization, and web design.
Urban Resilience Research at Penn City and Regional Planning
Selected as PURM (Penn Undergraduate Research Mentorship) Fellow, I conducted research and wrote a summary on city resilience designs in response to sea level rise under supervision of Dr Stefan Al. I created 3D models in Rhino and section drawings in Adobe Illustrator. The book Adapting Cities to Sea Level Rise: Green and Gray Strategies was published in 2019 and my graphics appear on the cover.
