SELECTED WORKS

Every project is designed as a response to the context's complexities and priorities of the most disadvantaged. The outcomes become sustainable thanks to a meaningful participatory process. Solutions come from those who need them. My role as a professional is to adapt smart technical solutions to their needs. Politics of gender, place, class, caste, environment always arise; projects become opportunities to adress them in favour of the least advantaged and future generations.
