Dr. Lane’s research focus are in the field of air pollution, built environment, urbanization and impacts of climate change on health in local, national and international settings. His expertise in big-data and spatial research has led to the development of novel methods that integrate geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing data and time-activity algorithms to improve exposure assessment and epidemiology. Currently, Dr. Lane Principal Investigator for the Federal Aviation Administration ASCENT Project 18 Community Measurements of Aviation Emissions Contribution to Ambient Air Quality. Additionally, he examines air pollution and built environment effects on cardio-metabolic health with the Population study of Urban, Rural and Semi-urban Endovascular Disease and Holistic Intervention Study (PURSE-HIS), and is a designated NIEHS health disparities career development researcher with the Center for Research on Environmental and Social Stressors in Housing across the life course (CRESSH) to examine the interactions between PM2.5, NO2 and social stressors on the associations with preterm and low birth weight. Prior to this position Dr. Lane also 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 collaborated with researchers to examine these associations in the United States, South Korea and India. Dr. Lane also conducts research with the Community Assessment of Freeway Exposure and Health Study at Tufts University to examine health impacts from traffic-related ultrafine particulate matter.
