Personal Experience

Her multidisciplinary experience in Architecture, Landscape Planning & Design, Inclusive Street Design, Public Engagement, Government Handholding & Capacity Building, Tactical Urbanism, Public Space Design, Urban Research, Participatory Practices, and Academia have allowed her to approach urban planning and design challenges with a system-based understanding for actionable outcomes. Over the past 7+ years, she has collaborated with multiple public and private offices, NGOs, and research organisations in Delhi-NCR. She has been an Architect, Program Coordinator at Raahgiri Foundation and Assistant Professor at University School of Architecture & Planning, Indraprastha University. Her post-graduate thesis has been about planning and designing city morphology for inclusive urban microclimates against heat stress, especially for outdoor workers and commuters. Currently, she is aiding the development of a technology-driven participatory approach to local governance for climate resilience in Indian cities, besides building capacities for implementing water-sensitive urban design in informal neighbourhoods and innovating methods of organising public capacity for climate action.
