Describe yourself in 3 words
Architecture, travel and Moscow 

What are your associations with Moscow?
I think this city is quite different from other cities I have been to, like New York, but I feel really close to it because I’m from China, so I think it’s a great experience for me here in Moscow. 

How do you think your knowledge and experience will help you in research?
I think the advantage of Strelka is that it can collect different kinds of people with different backgrounds. I studied architecture and urbanism for 5 years in the Netherlands. I had a year of working experience so I think I can interact with people of different fields, I think we will create good results. 

Who do you want to be when you graduate from Strelka?
I don’t know the short-term aim, but I see the long-term one. I will go back to China and work on some projects in both architecture and urbanism. 

Strelka is —
… a great place for me which will provide a great experience afterwards. It’s going to be interesting, it’s going to be great.
