Technical Content Creator, EDS

“Drawing from close to a decade of experience, I am a seasoned architect and green building professional who has worked across all architectural scales, from interior to urban design. I have worked for a design studio and an MNC based in the USA, where I specialized in creating conceptual designs and providing execution-ready drawings, construction documents, pricing, and estimation for commercial and residential projects.

Driven by my passion for sustainable building design, I pursued an MTech in Building Energy Performance from CEPT University and also worked as a research intern at the CARBSE research facility. In the field of academia, I have taught master’s students at both CEPT University and Nitte Institute of Architecture, Mangalore. My expertise is reflected in the 11 papers I have published on a range of topics, including HAMT, Thermal comfort, Energy Simulation, building construction, and education pedagogy.

I have also been involved with the Solar Decathlon India competition in various capacities as a faculty lead, TRG member, and reviewer, demonstrating my technical knowledge and passion for sustainable building design.

Currently, I am part of the EDS Pvt. Ltd. team, working on various education programs, green building certification, net-zero energy building design, and design guidelines for the IAQ project.”
