This laboratory is led by Dr. Marina E. Vance, assistant professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering & in the Environmental Engineering Program at CU-Boulder.
Our research focus is in Air Quality, particularly in experimental measurement of the physical properties of aerosols (small particle or droplets suspended in air) in the context of ambient and indoor air quality. Applications of our research include evaluating physical and chemical transformations of aerosols indoors and outdoors and assessing emissions to inform "safer by design" consumer products. Our mission is to perform experimental aerosol science research to lead to a positive impact in human health and the environment.
Research keywords: Air quality, indoor air quality, ultrafine aerosols, airborne nanoparticles, particulate matter, exposure science.
Our lab is at the Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Complex (SEEC), in the CU East Campus.
