I am a fifth year architecture student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute working toward a Bachelor of Architecture with a minor in Science, Technology, and Society. These studies have allowed me to explore the impacts that architecture and design have on society and the environment, and dually, how these concerns are vital to the development of architecture and design. Currently, I am engaged in a year long thesis project examining the issues surrounding urban expansion in Mexico City, with the aim to present a framework for sustainable future growth. My goal after graduation is to combine my technical and conceptual education in architecture with my interests in social, cultural, and environmental issues to develop and help implement appropriate design solutions to humanitarian crises around the world.
