With her academic background in architecture, interior design, mathematics and fine arts, Dr. Suh brings a wide spectrum of interdisciplinary perspectives to design education.
Dr. Suh’s research examines various ways to visualize and conceptualize design ideas through an interdisciplinary lens. She studies ways to implement environmental systems as design tools and integrate them into the built environment for human comfort, sustainability and space aesthetics. Dr. Suh also explores various digital and mobile applications to establish better understanding between students and teachers and that can help expand students’ learning outside of the classroom.
She loves learning to play various musical instruments, enjoys practicing yoga at the beach and traveling around the world.
