As a graduate student, Sayali focused her efforts on using lean principles to improve efficiency at one U.S. hospital—and also improve prognoses for cancer patients receiving treatment there. That cemented her belief that architecture and design have the power to heal. From small clinics to complex research hospital campuses, she is driven by curiosity and responsibility, seeing every project as an opportunity to change patient outcomes for the better. Sayali’s sense of proportion and art hits in the kitchen, too, where she loves experimenting with spices.
