Despite losing his leg below the knee in 2016, Albert maintains a relentless quest into the farthest reaches of our planet. Albert’s journey began in Mongolia’s Valley of the Khans, a pioneering initiative that harnessed technology to search for Genghis Khan’s tomb. This project marked the genesis of his using similar approaches that led to groundbreaking discoveries across the globe. Albert’s most noteworthy accomplishment involves using lidar (laser mapping) to uncover ancient cities concealed beneath the canopies of remote jungles, mountain ranges, and deserts. His expeditions have been brought to a global audience in adventure-driven factual TV series, including “Lost Treasures of the Maya,” “Buried Secrets of the Bible,” and “Lost Cities with Albert Lin.” Fueled by a Ph.D. in engineering, Albert surveys ancient civilizations with a keen eye.
