Event Description
Scientist Jessica Green inspires people to think about bacteria in new ways. In her teaching and research at the University of Oregon and the Santa Fe Institute, Green explores how the microbial blueprints of our bodies, homes, cities, and forests impact our world, and our future. As co-founder of Phylagen, a DNA data harvesting and analytics company, Green envisions a future for urban design that promotes sustainability, human health, and well-being.
