Design (GSD)

I'm a first year DDes student at Harvard Graduate School of Design, focusing my research on energy efficiency in the home by integrating the home with robotics and artificial intelligence. I'm experienced in sustainable urban and building design, product design, and data visualization. I love animals, and won't pass up the opportunity to pet a dog! My interest in the sustainability of food grew when I participated in a food related design project. After that, I've been self-educating on nutrition and health, the food industry, policies and food waste. My interest is in growing awareness on nutrition, the environmental impact of food and living conditions of livestock.
