I’m a multi-disciplinary design engineer based in Boston, Massachusetts. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in sustainable architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering from Boston University School of Engineering.
My current research is focused on the cross-disciplinary dialogue between artificial intelligence, climate justice, and social equality. Using machine learning toolkits allows me to better understand the built environment and assist in the design process by evaluating various elements regarding their environmental and social impacts.
When I’m not running simulations or writing code, I’m snapping pictures, mixing paints, and drinking tea.
The recent news hate crimes shed light on a long-overlooked issue that the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders community faces. In coping, I created four designs of protest signs to offer my support in the movement. I also linked organizations and external resources supporting the AAPI community.
This past year has been different to say the least. The pandemic has altered our lives, forcing many people to adapt to unfamiliar and unusual environments and routines. This photo series aims to document how people have adapted during the pandemic by recording their work-from-home routines. Special thanks to my 8 friends who opened up their lives to me.
