I am an architectural historian, currently researching the history of Hong Kong’s financial district. I conduct this work as a postgraduate research student (MPhil) in the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong. Previously, I studied architectural history as a postgraduate (MS) at the University of California, Berkeley, and an undergraduate (BA) at the City University of New York.

I have assisted in organizing projects for architectural institutions including the Architectural League of New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Van Alen Institute, amongst many others. In this vein, I am currently helping organize an exhibition on the work of infrastructure photographer Heather Coulson, to be exhibited at the Hong Kong Government’s City Gallery in 2018.

I believe strongly in the transformative power of open-access publications, and have worked in partnership with other architectural historians to create them, such as co-editing Asymmetric Labors: The Economy of Architecture in Theory and Practice (The Architecture Lobby, 2016) and assisting in editing Black Lives Matter (Aggregate, 2015).
