Biography

As an architecture student, I am passionate about pushing the boundaries when it comes to revolutionising our future cities with buildings that are both technologically innovative and eco-friendly to suit the changing climate. I aspire to aid in the research and development of future cities between Australia and Asia in order to gain insight and knowledge into these key factors, and with a further endeavour of supporting the developing Asia-Pacific countries.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching films from various cultures and in various languages to stimulate cultural literacy as well as spend time exploring a range of topics which includes cultural, scientific and ecological philosophy.

Growing up as an Australian-born Asian I have always been very driven in immersing myself in different traditions, languages and the bridging of cultures.
