Karly Do


Karly is a graduate of the Master of Landscape Architecture program. In her undergrad, she discovered a passion for conservation biology and cultural heritage. She decided that pursuing a career in landscapearchitecture would be the best way to marry these interests with her love of art, storytelling, and travelling. During her time in the MLA program, her interests have also expanded to urban design and cultural heritage. Karly hopes to gain international experience working at a firm that specializes in urban design before eventually becoming an instructor.
