 Can We Encourage Healthy and Happy Microbial Environments in the Design of Buildings?

Jessica Green, an engineer and ecologist at the University of Oregon and the Santa Fe Institute is keenly interested in studying the nature of microorganisms around a hospital and the influence of the design of the building which can either encourage or inhibit the formation of a healthy environment.

Jessica Green was on a journey of finding out if building designs and ventilation systems can be created in such a way as to encourage healthy and happy microbial environments.
