Cristina Cassandra Murphy, registered architect in the Netherlands, is an Assistant Professor at MSU, Baltimore, and an Adjunct Lecturer at the WAAC. She started at OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture) and co-founded XCOOP, a think-tank analyzing contemporary living.

She delivers this via design studios, study trips abroad, symposiums on inaccessible spaces and inquiries, and design-build activities. Cristina was a thesis mentor at the Politecnico di Milano; an adjunct at TU Delft, AoA and KRVIA Mumbai; a fellow at the Taliesin School of Architecture; Hyde Chair of Excellence at the UNL; and a Lecturer at UofA. Cristina has been a guest reviewer at the University of UCA El Salvador, UniCA of Cagliari, TUDelft and MIARD | Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam, ASU in Phoenix, at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, at the University of Michigan, at the University of Texas at Houston, and at MIT.
