Background

I received my BASc from the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto. I am interested in building science and indoor air quality because people spend more than 90% of their time indoors. I hope that my research will help to reduce people's exposure to harmful contaminants.

Research Interests

My research focuses on the performance and benefits of central HVAC filters and portable air cleaner sand how they reducing particle and other contaminant concentrations in residential buildings.
