The area of focus throughout his personal and academic endeavors is centered on acts of resilience in the face of political and social adversity.
His dissertation Co-Building for a Displaced Community falls within the discourse of spatial justice. Further, it ignites a conversation that extends beyond the building of homes for the purposes of just shelter.
He is inspired by community resilience and believes that there are valuable lessons to be learned from an architecture of need. His current architectural design exploration is centered around community and individual agency, as he believes that the act of participation of the end user is essential in creating a sense of place.
He was a selected scholar at the Norman Foster Foundation Cities: Affordable Housing Workshop 2022 supported by the Holcim Foundation.
