Ir. Teeuwen, R.F.L.

Roos Teeuwen is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering.

Academic Background

My research interests lie where the physical urban environment meets people and their well-being. I am driven by the intention to provide creative design with meaning, context and facts wherever possible. 

In my PhD research, I study urban greenspaces in a pedestrian-centered manner: how they relate to their physical surroundings and how people perceive such spaces. The overarching aim of my research is to inform the design of green, walkable, and foremost healthy urban environments. 

To achieve this, I am combining subjective and objective urban data, and build upon both data science and human centered methods. I believe that data can be used to link what is - such as the space around us - to what is perceived by people, thereby making more tangible how well-being of individuals can benefit from the spatial designs we make. 

My PhD position is funded by the Horizon 2020 project named 'Equal-Life: Early environmental quality and life-course mental health effects'.
