I graduated with a MArch Architecture with Merit in July 2014 at the Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) and received a Commendation for my Professional studies written piece. I worked as a research assistant under the supervision of Rob Hyde and have been involved in the organisation of a number of university workshops and lectures, along with my involvement with the RIBA as a student representative on Council, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce and RIBA North West which helped me build diverse and interesting relationships. For my work I received the Dhamit Dhokia Award for Outstanding Contribution to MSA. Recently, I was re-elected to take on the Associate seat on RIBA Council and have been actively involved in student affairs, taking part in the Architectural Education Review and having recently judged the RIBA Stephen Williams award. Currently, I work as a Part II Architectural Assistant at Scott Brownrigg and amongst project commitments I am happy to be involved with the Stephen Lawrence work experience students. ​ My work aims at a creative ingenuity in the details combined with efficient design solutions within the urban landscape. In addition to my academic qualifications, I have gained post Part I practical experience as part of a small team at an architectural practice focused on mixed use residential projects. Furthermore, during the course of my degree I have been involved in a variety of international placements which have reinforced my skills to work efficiently in collaboration and present my work in a professional environment. Some of my other skills include excellent knowledge of CAD, Graphisoft Archicad with Artlantis, Rhino and Grasshopper plug in, Sketchup, Autocad and the Adobe Creative Suite. Although my experience with Revit is basic, I am eager to master use of the program with additional training. During my summer and Easter breaks I also work as a Center manager under Oxford International Education Group, running a school in Greenwich, London for international students 12-18 years old.
