Jenny Roe is the first Mary Irene DeShong Professor of Design and Health and the Director of the Center of Design and Health at the University of Virginia. Jenny is an Environmental Psychologist who explores the interactions between people and their environment, from micro settings (such as a room or individual building scale or even submarines in the case of one recent project) through to neighbourhoods and macro settings that include cities, whole cultures and geographies.

She is a specialist researcher in restorative environments and places that actively improve our health, for instance, high quality urban parks, natural water settings, and well designed buildings with good daylight.
