My interests lie at the intersection of Math, Physics and Architecture. This allowed me to build an appreciation towards computation and its potential in Architecture, practically, technically and theoretically, which shapes a lot of my work and projects. 

Beyond that, I am keen to learn more about the digital tools that are used in translating Architecture.
