Microscopic organisms permeate our bodies and our buildings. While some of these microbes are detrimental to our health, others keep us alive. Jessica Green believes that we're designing buildings to keep microbes out -- regardless of whether they're good or bad -- and calls for a new breed of "interior groundskeepers.
Jessicaaka "Thumper Biscuit" in roller derby circlesis a professor at both the University of Oregon and the Santa Fe Institute. She's a TED Fellow whose current goal is to help people visualize the invisible world of microorganisms to foster a world full of buildings that limit infectious disease and maximize energy.
