About Linda Powers Tomasso

Linda Powers Tomasso investigates nature as a health-promoting exposure and intervention strategy through her postdoctoral research at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Her mixed-methods approach to exposure assessment brings qualitative insights into a discipline typically determined by quantitative factors to learn what motivates nature-seeking behavior, what barriers exist to nature engagement, and how these factors affect equity of nature access and climate adaptation.

An MS from Georgetown, ALM from Harvard Extension School in environmental management, and an early career with the US State Department shaped Tomasso’s policy knowledge, which is indispensable to her current research. Her favorite places to be in nature are the snowy woods and underwater.
