 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Lane has worked in the Environmental Health and geographic information systems (GIS) fields for over a decade on air pollution and built environment health studies and now is a research associate in the Department of Environmental Health at the Boston University School of Public Health. Currently, Dr. Lane works as a health disparities career development fellow at the Center for Research on Environmental and Social Stressors in Housing across the life course (CRESSH; NIEHS 1P50MD010428-01; PI Jonathan Levy and Francine Laden) to examine the interactions between ambient air pollution and social stressors on the associations with preterm and low birth weight in Massachusetts. Prior to this position he was awarded a Yale Climate and Energy Institute postdoctoral fellowship to examine the relationship between the built environment, urban heat island health impacts where he has collaborated with researchers to examine these associations in the United States, South Korea and India. Dr. Lane’s dissertation research was conducted at BUSPH where he was awarded an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science to Achieve Results (STAR; FP-917203) pre-doctoral fellowship to analyze the relationship between chronic exposure to ultrafine particulate matter and cardiovascular health as a member of the Community Assessment of Freeway Exposure and Health Study. He also has developed and taught Introduction to GIS courses at the BU Metropolitan College and BUSPH. Dr. Lane also has an MA in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning from Tufts University and brings extensive experience in GIS working in city government, consulting and nonprofit sectors.
