Achintya is a computational designer working with our Practice Technology team in Vancouver. She works mostly on the engineering side of the computational design team on varied projects including high rises, institutional and infrastructure projects to develop computational design solutions. Another aspect of Achintya’s job is to assist leadership with project management and internal organizational data analysis and data visualization.
Achintya was involved in the development of interactive web-based project management and Business Intelligence dashboards to assist project managers and executives in making data-driven decisions. Building upon her engineering background, she works towards increasing the efficiency in engineering design by using visual programming and algorithmic thinking to automate structural design calculations. Recently, she led the initiative to develop a custom structural slab design automation tool which increases the productivity and gives designers more time for creativity.
When she’s not busy developing or debugging new tools, Achintya loves to travel.
