Fate of Indoor Air Molecules


To improve our knowledge of the total chemical exposure of humans, it is critical to understand the fate of chemical compounds emitted indoors. The frequent usage of personal care products makes them an important source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the indoor environment. In our group, we’re interested in studying the complex mixture of VOCs emitted by humans and how these molecules impact human health and indoor air quality. We use laboratory studies and field work to inform on these research questions.
