I’m a MASc student in the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering at the University of Toronto, under the joint supervision of Professor Jeffrey Siegel and Professor Sarah Haines. Previously, I graduated from McGill University with an Honours B.A. (Distinction) in Environmental studies and English literature.
My research interests centre on aspects of indoor air quality that impact human health and wellbeing. My current research project aims to understand how I can use filter forensics to assess the presence and amount of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in a building with many occupants. Beyond my research project, I’m also interested in issues of environmental equity and indoor air quality, as well as the intersection of indoor air quality, cognitive performance, and wellbeing. I’m especially interested in how to communicate scientific research in order to effect change in peoples’ indoor air habits.
