I am an architect/ urban planner with professional and research experience in designing urban systems and climate resilience - currently pursuing my Ph.D. at the Resilience Lab, TU Delft (advised by Prof. Tina Comes and Dr. Nazli Aydin)

My research is focused on finding long-term resilient urban planning pathways for Mumbai and Amsterdam. I use a combination of methods, including land-use models, exploratory modeling, and qualitative design research. The research is supported by the Delft Global Fellowship and the CDRI Fellowship.

At TU Delft, I am also a guest lecturer and teaching assistant for the following courses:

EPA1102 Understanding International Grand Challenges
WM0374TU Project Research and Design

Previously, I was on the core team of the global Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) and UNDRR, the National Institute of Public Finance and Policy (NIPFP), and the Government of India.

Education: The combination of climate resilience and urban planning was the focus of my masters degree in Urbanism from TU Delft. I graduated with Honours in Infrastructure and Environmental Design. Originally from Mumbai, I received my Bachelors degree from Sir J J School of Architecture, where I was the 'Best Outgoing Student. As a licensed architect, I have worked on design commissions with Christopher Benninger Architects, Serie Architects, and as an independent consultant.


Location: I am currently based in Rotterdam, Netherlands and often travel to Mumbai and Boston.
