Linchen He is an environmental health scientist exploring the health effects of conventional and emerging environmental risk factors (e.g., air pollution and climate change-related exposures) and the underlying pathophysiologic pathways. He comes to Lehigh from the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health, where he conducted his postdoctoral research. He received his Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences and Health, an MA in Environmental Epidemiology, and a Master’s degree in Environmental Management from Duke University.
Dr. He’s research focuses on exploring the health effects of conventional and emerging environmental risk factors and the underlying pathophysiologic pathways, by: (1) Discovering, analyzing, and using new biomarkers; (2) Utilizing low-cost sensors to conduct precise exposure assessment (e.g., air pollution and heat exposure); and (3) Developing and applying advanced statistical models and data-driven methods.
