Considering our physical built environment as the largest kind of interface between humans and the surrounding space, Sora is interested in finding ways to computationally represent human visual spatial experiences that are produced by the forms that comprise designed ambient environments.

Sora is an assistant professor at Texas Tech University, teaching, and programming to conduct research in design method/process and systems to support design.

She is currently running Robotics Laboratory within the College of Architecture. Prior to her PhD work she practiced architectural design in Seattle and Seoul. She has been teaching Design Process, Design Foundations, Visual Representation & Spatial Composition, and Introduction to Digital Media in addition to regular architecture studios, all for college students. She holds the Ph.D. in Computational Design (advisor, Mark D Gross), Carnegie Mellon University and M.Arch, University of Washington.
