Biography

Current Student Teaching Assistant and Master’s Candidate at the University of Tennessee. Interested in the role of an architect as advancing cultural and natural relationships through design. My in-progress thesis is studying the way in which architecture can begin to construct understanding in the conflict between Israel/Palestine through re-writing histories, structuring conversation vehicles, and defining how a dialectic memory can be expressed.
