Li, Dongying Assistant Professor


How does the built environment impact human health, and how can we design places that support human functioning and enhance human well-being? As a researcher, I explore the human-environment relationships, especially the mental health benefits of exposure to urban nature using measures and approaches from geography, psychology, and public health. As a designer, I apply my research findings to support interdisciplinary evidence-based design that addresses pressing issues such as climate change, environmental health and equity.
