Lindsay Underhill, PhD
Lindsay Underhill is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. She received her PhD in Environmental Health from the Boston University School of Public Health. Her research focuses on the application of diverse exposure assessment and analytical methods, including geographic information systems (GIS), building physics simulation, risk modeling, and epidemiology, to investigate the impacts of built environment interventions on indoor and outdoor air quality and related health outcomes. Currently, she is also a Postdoctoral UJMT Fogarty Global Health Fellow conducting international health research under the mentorship of Dr. William Checkley. As part of a multi-country, field intervention trial of LPG stove and fuel distribution (HAPIN trial), she is researching the underlying epigenetic mechanisms by which household air pollution (HAP) in homes that rely on solid fuels for cooking may lead to adverse birth outcomes in low-resource communities in Puno, Peru.
