Ming Kuo

Ming Kuo, Ph.D., leads the Landscape and Human Health Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her research convincingly links healthy urban ecosystems to stronger, safer neighborhoods, lower crime, reduced AD/HD symptoms, reduced aggression, and an array of other mental and physical health indicators. Dr. Kuo’s work has spurred increased urban forestry efforts in Wales, Germany, the Netherlands, the Caribbean, and the United States, and, in 2018, she was awarded the Heinz Award for the Environment.
