Linsey Marr is the Charles P. Lunsford Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech. She leads the Applied Interdisciplinary Research in Air Laboratory, which studies pollutants in indoor and outdoor air. Prior to the pandemic, she was one of a small number of researchers who studied viruses in the air. She has been cited by public health agencies and media around the world for her research on SARS-CoV-2 and other airborne pathogens. Marr is a newly elected member of the National Academy of Engineering, a recipient of an NSF CAREER award and an NIH New Innovator award. She is a Fellow of the American Association for Aerosol Research, American Geophysical Union, and International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate. She has served on National Academies committees on grand challenges in environmental engineering and transmission of COVID-19 and influenza. Marr received a B.S. in engineering science from Harvard College and a Ph.D. in civil and environmental engineering from the University of California, Berkeley and completed her post-doctoral training at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
