Hana H. Nguyenky
Hana's journey exemplifies the transformative power of education and the pursuit of knowledge. Despite initial challenges with reading and writing, she persevered and found her passion in learning.
Starting with a Bachelor of Architecture and a minor in anthropology from Woodbury University, Hana recognized the importance of understanding not just the technical aspects of architecture, but also its relationship with communities and people. Her interdisciplinary approach, blending architecture with anthropology, provided her with a unique perspective on how built environments intersect with human agency.
"Anthropology supplemented those gaps that a formal architectural program didn’t necessarily provide.”
Continuing her academic journey at the University of Michigan, Hana delved deeper into her passion for research by earning a Master of Science degree with a focus on design research in digital and material technologies. Here, she explored cutting-edge advancements in fabrication and design, further honing her skills in understanding how academic research can shape professional practice.
Hana's dedication to her field goes beyond personal achievement; she sees her work as a means to contribute to future generations. Through her continuous pursuit of knowledge and her commitment to bridging the gap between academia and practical implementation, Hana embodies the essence of lifelong learning and the potential it holds for meaningful change.
"I’m really interested in contributing to future generations by sharing the work and lessons learned. I’ve been involved with and making knowledge more accessible to people who may not be aware that it is available to them as something attainable. Investigate, innovate, and inspire are the goals I have for my career.”
