講者介紹:

Dr. Hsien-Chang Lin is an Associate Professor of Health Policy at Indiana University School of Public Health at Bloomington. He is also Fellow of the American Academy of Health Behavior. Before joining Indiana University, he was trained in Economics (BA and MAs), Sociology (BA), Health Policy and Pharmaceutical Health Services Research (dual PhD), and Pharmacoepidemiology and Comparative Effectiveness Research (Postdoc). National Taiwan University is Dr. Lin’s alma mater where he obtained his bachelor and master degrees in the Department of Economics and Department of Sociology.

His research program encompasses health services, health policy, pharmaceutical health outcomes, and health behavior research. Guided by the socioecological model of health, Dr. Lin applies multidisciplinary perspectives and methods to bridge macro-level health policy analysis to micro-level health behavioral research. Recently, he is particularly interested in how policies may influence substance use/misuse behaviors, including e-cigarette vaping behaviors as well as physicians’ prescribing and patients’ use/misuse of prescription opioids. His work also focuses on adopting innovative methods to address complex health issues, such as using big data methods to deal with high-dimensional quantitative data in policy and genetics to study their influences on substance use/misuse behaviors. His research is supported by federal and state agencies including the National Institute on Drug Abuse and Indiana State Department of Health. He was recently awarded a 2.6 million U.S. dollar research grant from the U.S. National Institutes of Health to study college students’ e-cigarette use behaviors. Dr. Lin has also published over 70 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals since 2011.

Dr. Lin served on the Board of the Directors of the American Academy of Health Behavior. He was also Vice President of the Chinese Economic Association in North America.
