Stephanie Taylor, MD, M Arch, CIC, FRSPH(UK)

CEO and Founder
Building4Health, Inc

Dr. Taylor’s work focuses on understanding the relationship between the built environment and occupant health with the goal of managing indoor air quality and other building parameters to decrease acute and chronic diseases.

After receiving her MD from Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts, she practiced clinical medicine for the next several decades.

While caring for hospitalized patients, Dr. Taylor became convinced that indoor environmental management played a substantial, yet unaddressed, role in patient infections. Determined to gain a better understanding of buildings and mechanical systems, she returned to school and obtained a master’s degree in Architecture. Her work now focuses on designing, building, and maintaining all occupied buildings with the explicit goal of optimizing human health and productivity. During this work, she realized that there was little medical data on how the indoor environment affects human physiology. 

Dr. Taylor is the CEO and Founder of Building4Health, Inc (B4H). Their sensor suite, analytical platform and occupant facing dashboard make visible the complex relationship between indoor air metrics and human physiology – thus allowing a determination of whether an indoor ecosystem has a positive or negative impact on occupant health. The B4H health standard pioneers the evaluation the impact of the indoor environment on human health.

Dr. Taylor is an active member of ASHRAE, and is a member of their Epidemic Task Force, Environmental Health Committee, and is a Distinguished Lecturer. She received the “Top 20 Women to Watch in Healthcare Engineering” award in 2019 and is a recipient of the ASHRAE Presidential Award for distinguished service during the COVID-19 pandemic. She also writes a monthly column for Engineered Systems.
