Bio


Chenghao is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Jackson Lab in the Department of Earth System Science. As a part of the New Map of Life Initiative, he is also a fellow in the domain of Environment at the Stanford Center on Longevity. He is currently studying the relationship between multi-scale energy consumption and human well-being metrics to reduce the need for global energy infrastructure and increase global equality. Chenghao received his Ph.D. from Arizona State University where he focused on the impacts of green infrastructure (especially urban trees) on urban meteorology and climatology using numerical simulations and remote sensing techniques.
