 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.

Jessica Green said that microbes have a significant role to play in every aspect of our lives. They help build ecosystems, have a role to play in climate change, and have a bearing on human health.

In a recent address, she spoke of the importance of designing buildings in such a way that it helps promote overall health.
