Dr. Linsey Marr is the Charles P. Lunsford Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech.  She holds a B.S. in Engineering Science from Harvard College and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.  She leads the Applied Interdisciplinary Research in Air (AIR2) laboratory and teaches courses on air pollution and environmental engineering.  She is a Fellow of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate and of the American Association for Aerosol Research, and she serves on the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology.  Dr. Marr’s research group studies the emissions, transformation, transport, and fate of pollutants in indoor and outdoor air.

She is especially interested in emerging or non-traditional aerosols such as engineered nano materials and viral aerosols such as viral pathogens and how they can be physically and chemically transformed in the environment.  Her research on the airborne transmission of infectious disease has focused on influenza, Ebola virus disease, and Legionnaire’s disease. She collaborates broadly with others to understand how changes at the microscopic to global scale affect public and environmental health.
