Nga Lee (Sally) Ng, professor in the School of Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering and School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, along with graduate students Daniel Alvarado-Velez and Sabrina Westgate are conducting research to understand how outdoor air quality impacts indoor air quality (IAQ). Low-cost air quality sensors (QuantAQ MODUDAIR and MODUAIR-PM) were installed inside and outside of The Kendenda Building to measure mass concentration of particulate matter (PM) of different sizes (PM1, PM2.5, PM10) as well as other gas pollutants, including ozone, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. Results from this study will help elucidate the effects of outdoor air quality on IAQ and could be used to determine steps needed to improve IAQ.
The sidebar contains papers published by Professor Ng and her team. There are also press releases and media reports. We look forward to seeing her team's research at The Kendeda Building published in papers.
