Aspecta by Metroflor Sponsoring Green's Keynote at NeoCon

Norwalk, CT, February 14, 2017— Aspecta by Metroflor is sponsoring the NeoCon presentation by keynote speaker Jessica Green, a scientist and founding director of the Biology and the Built Environment (BioBE) Center.

The free presentation will take place June 13 at 8:30 a.m. in the NeoCon Theater (Motorola, 19th floor).

Green is a scientist inspiring people to think about bacteria in entirely new ways. As founding director of the BioBE Center, she works with architects and engineers to advance the public’s understanding of how microbial communities assemble, interact, evolve and influence public health.

She is also co-founder and CTO of Phylagen, a DNA data harvesting and analytics company.

The sponsorship of Jessica’s speech reflects Metroflor’s growing interest in biophilic design. Said Rochelle Routman, chief sustainability officer for Metroflor Corporation, “There is such synergy between the philosophy of Biophilia and Jessica’s understanding of how we are intimately connected with each other and even the smallest forms of life. I encourage everyone to attend this speech as Jessica will explore the beauty in the order of living things and how as humans we are dependent upon it to safeguard our collective place in the world.”  

In her presentation, Green will explore how the microbial blueprint of human beings, homes, cities and forests impacts the world, and the future. Green is currently spearheading efforts to model urban spaces as complex ecosystems that house trillions of diverse microorganisms interacting with each other, with humans, and with their environment.
