Alex Felson runs the Urban Ecology and Design Laboratory at Yale

You may not recognize his name—yet—but Alex Felson, just a touch over the age of 40, is making one for himself as a pioneer in the burgeoning field of “urban ecology.”

Felson runs the Urban Ecology and Design Laboratory—or UEDLAB—at Yale, a bright, roomy space in a building off Prospect Street. It’s half-wet lab—a space where hands-on experiments using biological and chemical materials are conducted dried plant species lined one counter during my visit—and half-architectural design studio, with oversized, write-on cabinets that are covered in scribbles and phrases related to various projects.
