Dr. Kate Lee is a Research Fellow in the School of Ecosystem & Forest Sciences. Her interdisciplinary work explores qualities of city and business environments that can enhance wellbeing, and in particular: 1) urban greenspace associations with health, wellbeing, and productivity, and 2) work conditions associated with happy, supported, and productive employees.
Her recent work has examined creativity and nature, twitter sentiments associated with urban greenspaces, how flexible work arrangements operate in large Australian organisations, and the role of micro-breaks and green roof views in recovering from stressful work demands. Kate has also worked in the Clean Air and Urban Landscape (CAUL) hub of the National Environmental Science Program.
