I currently work as a Research Assistant for the Faculty of Built Environment at The University of New South Wales, Sydney. I’m currently finishing my Masters of Philosophy degree, also at UNSW. My research is based on Parametric Master Planning using Artificial Organic Simulations through Topographical Analysis.

Having finished a Bachelors of Architectural Computing (UNSW), I’ve continued the research from my graduation thesis and published the findings as well as presented at conferences around the world, notably; the Education and Research in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe (eCAADe) conference, the GSTF Urban Planning and Property Development (UPPD) conference, and the Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA) conference.

I’m also involved with various research collaborations involving the government and industry. From high-level research consultation to on the ground HR management, I aim to learn and gain invaluable experiences from everyday work.

Additionally, I teach Piano at high school, having completed my Associate Diploma (AMusA) from the Australian Music Examination Board. I’ve also received numerous awards during his Bachelor’s degree including; The Director of Architecture Discipline Prize – Computational Design 2016, The Director of Computational Design Prize 2015, The Undergraduate Dean’s List 2014 – 2016, and was named a UNSW Built Environment Scholar.
