Andrea Jelic

POSTDOCTORAL​ RESEARCHER

Architect and researcher, working at the intersection of architecture, embodied cognitive science, and phenomenology, aimed at developing an embodied, enactive, and emotional model of people’s experience of the built environment that can be embraced in user-centered design. She uses this integrated interdisciplinary perspective in teaching about the effects of built spaces on users’ health and well-being. Her current interests include the relationship between body, stress, spatial experience, and language; social sustainability; the impact of built environment on children’s learning through play.
