Hello! I am an individual highly interested in eco-settlements with intentional communities. My interest has grown the past five years, while I have directed my professional architectural work and research on sustainable settlement design, architecture, infrastructure and energy systems. Currently, I am planning to do some PhD research focusing on specific eco-villages from the perspective of System Innovations and Sustainability Transitions. I believe there is a lot to learn from the existing hands-on researches going on in the eco-settlements individually, collaboratively, and through international networks.
