During my undergraduate life here at the University of Toronto, I learnt that our quality of life (e.g. health and productivity) is closely related to the quality of the indoor environment. This is why I joined our group to explore how we can better engineer our living and working space.

Research Interests

My focusses on analyzing indoor particle size distributions, as well as investigating the correlation between HVAC performance, filter performance and particle concentrations. This will help us learn more about particle filter performance in real life situations.
