Neuroscience and Design

I edizione
  • Inglese
  • aprile 2024


An architect and a scientist, with 20+ years in architecture. A NAAD graduate, and now a fellow of the MPI for Human Development, she explores the effects of architectural design on the human brain.

She is both an architect and a scientist, working at the intersection of architecture and neuroscience. With over two decades in the architecture industry, she is passionate about human-centric design.

Her academic journey resumed when she joined the first edition of the “Neuroscience applied to Architectural Design” program in 2017, with a primary focus on mental health. Currently, she is nearing completion of her Ph.D. with the “Environmental Neuroscience” group at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.

Her research investigates the impact of architectural design on the human brain across the lifespan. Using neuroimaging and cognitive testing, she seeks to understand how to optimize spaces in ways to improve cognitive functioning, physical/mental health, and well-being.

Dedicated to human-centric, evidence-based design, she works towards a systematic integration of scientific research and findings into architecture and urban practices, and consults on research-informed design.
