Petra Thorpert
Petra Thorpert holds a PhD in landscape architecture and teaches landscape design at bachelor and master levels at the Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management, SLU, Sweden. Both teaching and research projects focus on perception of landscape and its relationship to landscape aesthetics and human health. The projects are often multidisciplinary, involving ecologists, environmental psychologists and artists covering both urban- and natural environments. Her doctoral thesis is built on studies performed in the urban green contexts and explores colour influences on human perception and related experiences
