My 20 odd years of work life has been partially in the sphere of building design and architecture as a practitioner, researcher and academic; and partially in the IT industry as a Business Analyst / Project Manager. This interesting journey has given me a very unique set of multidisciplinary exposure and skills to be a strategic space planner. Recent completion of my doctorate degree in a mutlidisciplinary study of urban development policies and stakeholder engagement strategies furthers my passion to seek ways to facilitate equitable and a sustainable future for all.
