After completing her undergraduate studies from Academy of Architecture, Mumbai, she carried out her post-graduate studies at CEPT University, where she received a Master of Architecture within the Architectural Design specialization. 

After her masters, she went on to work with Shimul Javeri Kadri Architects in Mumbai (2016) and JMA Design Collaborative in Ahmedabad (2017-2018) where she worked as a Senior Architect heading various Architectural projects. 

Her interest in research lie in understanding micro and macro narratives of lived spaces, their intangible quality, and how they can be translated into small design interventions that impact larger contexts. This has led to her being a studio tutor at the Bachelor of Urban Design program at CEPT University, where she has conducted several design studios -as part of her ongoing research- as ‘Play Methodologies’, ‘Occupied: A graphic Anatomy of Everyday Urban’ and ‘Light Infrastructures’.
