The Indoor Environment Research Group investigates indoor air quality (IAQ) issues pertaining to indoor chemistry and particle formation and mitigation practices, as well as sustainable building operation strategies that use smart, dynamic, and responsive ventilation practices to promote optimal IAQ while reducing building energy use. The group has instrumental capabilities both in the BSEG and DARRL laboratories, and has projects funded by NSF, ASHRAE, and the EEB HUB in Philadelphia.
The goal of the Indoor Environment Research Group is to investigate problems and find solutions related to: (i) indoor particle formation, (ii) indoor filtration, (iii) Biowall filtration, and (iv) dynamic ventilation strategies.
