Higher Degree by Research Candidate

School of Architecture and Civil Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

I am an architect (India), educator, and researcher currently pursuing a PhD in architecture at the University of Adelaide, Australia.
I completed my Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) from NIT, Calicut, India, and my Master of Architecture (M.Arch) in Building Management from Sathyabhama University, Chennai, India.
With more than 5 years of work experience, I have worked in architectural firms in Kuwait, such as KEO International Consultants and ARCHJS, and as an educator at several architectural institutions in India, including the Sushant School of Architecture, Gurgaon; Amity University, Kolkata; & SCMS School of Architecture, Kochi.
My current research focuses on collaborative pedagogy in architectural design studios.

My research focuses on architectural pedagogy by seeking to understand how to foster an inclusive and collaborative culture in architectural design studios. My study aims to analyze current teaching practices through collaboration, identify the existing challenges of collaborative design pedagogy, how it is being facilitated, and what the best practices are. This study also addresses a crucial yet often overlooked aspect of architectural education: the student’s sense of belonging and wellbeing in studios.
