She was the teaching assistant of Case Studies in Architecture and Cities and GIS/CAFM–Spatial Analysis in Infrastructure Planning, and research assistant for the Urban Ecology Publication of the Pittsburgh Commons project, with Professor Stefan Gruber and Phd researcher Elena Katrini. She worked as a Community Design Associate in the Design Center, Pittsburgh, in the summer of 2017.
