Welcome to the KairLab

Welcome to the KAIR group. Population growth and the desire for improved living standards places ever-increasing stress on several interconnected resources: energy, air quality, water, and food. Our group focuses on three aspects of this grand challenge: (1) how low-cost, air-quality sensing can improve our understanding of local-air quality and how it can engage the community, (2) how particle physicochemical properties and their transformations during atmospheric aging affect human health, and (3) how changes in our energy landscape affect air, water and food resources.

Congratulations to Ember Chadwick and Katrina Le for their AIChE Best Paper award for their recent Journal of Aerosol Science paper on using a low-cost sensor network to understand the effects of COVID-19 on local air quality
