BHASVIC was a very formative time for me. It provided two years of intellectual awakening, growth, extra-curricular opportunities and a lot of parties! Crucially, at BHASVIC you can take control of your education. I remember spending lunches and free periods in the library, between the high creative energy of the Physics and Art departments which imprinted vibrant memories. I am not sure that I can put my finger on a specific magic ingredient; but it was at BHASVIC that I learnt to approach learning with energy, a sense of exploration and discovery.

I’ve no doubt that BHASVIC (particularly the Art + Physics depts.) set me up to succeed in studying Architecture at Peterhouse, Cambridge, where I graduated with a starred first in 2014. I then completed a Masters of Architecture at M.I.T. in 2019, winning the departmental Imre Halasz prize and Lafarge Holcim Award for sustainable construction. Upon graduation, I was retrained by M.I.T as a teaching fellow. Teaching was a sacred experience, and one day I hope to be able to do more! I’m currently living in New York where I consult on the fabrication, engineering and design of a variety of buildings around the world.
