About Dr Chinmoy Sarkar
Dr. Chinmoy Sarkar is an Associate Professor at the Department of Urban Planning & Design, Faculty of Architecture, and co-leads the Healthy High Density Cities Lab, HKUrbanLab at HKU. He is also an Honorary Member at the Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford. His research experience and interests lie in the interdisciplinary field of Healthy Places and Cities, specifically, social and environmental epidemiology of chronic and infectious diseases (including biomarker-environment, brain-environment and gene-environment studies); determinants of neurodegenerative (dementia, Alzheimer's) diseases and mental health disorders; healthy longevity; science (including planning and design) of healthy cities; health-specific environmental exposure modelling, epidemiological designs and statistical programming. His work has leveraged the power of large cohorts (UK Biobank, Hong Kong FAMILY cohort and others), models, and algorithms towards a more nuanced and evidence-based approach to health city science.
