I have experience in public buildings’ architectural design from the atelier of Kengo Kuma and Associates (隈研吾建築都市設計事務所) in Tokyo. Furthermore, I was lucky to be part of the small team of Hideyuki Nakayama Architecture (中山英之建築設計事務所) and in Yoshiyuki Kawazoe’s Kousou Inc (空間構想) for internship. I also have various engineering and robotics experience with creating the world’s first flying umbrella – Magicasa and also working on IoT smart product that enhance user safety and wellness. Before coming to Tokyo I was working as a full time architect in FORMA Studio under the supervision of Arch. Angel Primov. During my university years in Bulgaria I took part in the organisation of One Architecture Week in Plovdiv as an exhibition coordinator.  Before that I was working part time as an interior designer in ViART Zone Ltd. and UX Designer of themes and experience packs for Ubuntu.

Graduated Doctor of Engineering from The University of Tokyo (東京大学) with main topic of computationally driven self-formation of geometry informed by the material availability. Also, graduated Master of Engineering (MEng) for advanced timber structures and computational architecture in 2019 from The University of Tokyo (東京大学). Before that I researched timber structures as part of Mikio Koshihara laboratory and studied business level Japanese language also in UTokyo. I was granted the MEXT scholarship to study in Japan in 2016. I also graduated Masters of Architecture (MA) from the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy (UACEG) in 2015 with excellence. I was born in the cultural capital of Bulgaria | telegram
