Palak Gupta

Council of Student Sustainability Leaders


Palak is an architect from India, and a post-professional graduate student at Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). Since her undergraduate studies at the Mumbai University, she has been involved, both academically and professionally in pedagogical and research conversations involving the communities vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. With a multi-disciplinary background, working and learning across India, on every project, she has found herself committed to engaging with both, public and private clients on social, environmental, and financial problems through collaboration, advocacy, participatory planning and designing innovative solutions.

Intrigued by current local and global issues of sustainability, urbanization, climate change and resilience, Palak hopes to work towards making an impact in the social urban fabric of India and continue a path of research by engaging with minority communities affected by the impacts of climate change across the globe.
