    Personal profile

    Artistic and research interests

    I am a producer and Ph.D. researcher in landscape architecture, with a particular focus on restorative green environments, environmental experiences, and human-environment relationships. My passion lies in understanding the intersection of human well-being and the natural world, and how we can create spaces that promote both. Through my work with researchers, designers, and planners, I strive to raise awareness of the importance of holistic restorative green environments, particularly in urban areas where the need for such spaces is often the greatest. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we can develop innovative solutions that prioritize the well-being of both humans and the planet. Together, we can create places that inspire and heal, fostering a sense of connection and belonging for all living beings.
