An architect and urban designer by training, Sachin joined Arup in 2008, to work on complex and large scale urban projects in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia. He brings trans-disciplinary perspectives to city design, making cities more resilient, sustainable and equitable, integrating this work with health, infrastructure, transport, planning and landscape.
