She is a Visiting Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Pratt Institute, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Spitzer School of Architecture.
Her research focuses on constructing a postmodernist materialist space through the interweaving of “Chinese Experimental Architecture” and “French Poststructuralist Theory,” which expands to envisioning the possibilities of Asian Feminist Architecture, and Posthumanist Sustainability. She is the founder and director of the research-based practice IfWorks, exploring art/architecture possibilities individually or collectively.
