Dr. Lin serves on the editorial and advisory boards for a number of academic and industry journals, including Nanotechnology Law & Business, Studies in Ethics, Law, and Technology, and NanoEthics. He is currently working on ethics and policy projects related to advanced military technologies, geoengineering, space technologies, virtual reality, synthetic biology, and more.
