Yougeng Lu (he/him/his) is a Postdoctoral Scholar with the Natural Capital Project on developing urban nature exposure model. His research focuses on exploring the linkages between exposure to urban nature, such as green space and street trees, and individual's physical activity and mental health. Yougeng received his Ph.D. in Urban Planning and Development from the University of Southern California, where he developed a high spatiotemporal resolution PM2.5 prediction model with low-cost air sensors and studied how people's travel behavior affects their air pollution exposure. He holds an M.Sc. in Urban Planning from University of Washington, Seattle; and a B.Sc. in Geography from Wuhan University, China.
