Riddhima enjoys teaching and believes every day is a new learning experience. According to her learning and education are a double-sided process where one teaches and two learn. Her inclination is towards research and design, which focuses on understanding and analyzing the symbiotic and asymbiotic relationship between cities and people and the built versus the unbuilt. Her position as a design, editorial and research associate at Terreform Urban Research, New York in 2016-17 along with the ongoing Indian Aesthetics post-graduate diploma course at Jnanapravaha, Mumbai has helped her shape her research and analytical skills. She is of the opinion that architecture has a very reciprocal association with everyone. To explore this association, she constantly tries to engage herself with activities relating to the same. She is currently a full-time faculty and teaches Architectural Design, Allied Design (Urban Design Studio), Humanities and Building Construction.
Master in Urban Planning (Urban Design) from City University of New York, New York
