Kevin Bennett

Kevin Bennett, PhD, is a Teaching Professor of Psychology at The Pennsylvania State University, Beaver Campus. His research—psychological science at the intersection of urban design and mental health—explores social, personality, and evolutionary dimensions of human activity in the built environment and focuses on three fundamental questions: (1) What are the meaningful ways in which people differ in personality, emotion, and engagement with physical spaces? (2) What are the root causes of these individual differences? (3) What are the important outcomes of all this? Dr. Bennett is coordinator of the psychology program at Penn State Beaver and a Fellow at the Centre for Urban Design and Mental Health.
