I am an urban planner in the architecture and planning team, where I work on master planning, strategy and transit-oriented development projects for our clients. Being part of Arup, and being part of providing a total solution for our clients means that we are constantly learning and refining our skills. I spend half of my time leading research developments, specializing in smart cities, urban heat island mitigation, and drone inspections for building and environmental projects.
My background is in international relations, with special interest in resilience projects and mega events such as the Olympic Games. One of my favorite Arup projects involves helping a remote village in the mountains of Sichuan become self-sufficient and take on the stewardship role of their protected area.
