Dr. Rollings is an assistant professor at the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture and concurrent in Psychology. Trained as an architect and environmental psychologist, Dr. Rollings systematically examines how the built and natural environment affect mental and physical health across multiple scales using a socioecological framework. Additionally, she develops and validates environmental assessment tools to quantify attributes of the physical environment related to health outcomes, especially among vulnerable populations. Results of this work inform design guidelines with the goal of establishing healthy, socially responsible, and sustainable buildings and cities.
