Looking to the future: Monitoring Indoor Air Quality in buildings


   Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences

  Prof Andrew Kemp,  Applications accepted all year round  Self-Funded PhD Students Only

About the Project

The overall objective is to generate and test out a system to monitor building indoor air quality (IAQ) to avoid the difficult situation the world has suffered with the worldwide pandemic. So the project needs to measure the air quality in separate rooms across a building. For this we will use the engineering schools across our faculty as a test bed. There are hundreds of rooms of different sizes, offices, lecture theatres, meeting rooms, laboratories, kitchens, etc. and we do not definitively know what to measure in order to satisfactorily determine IAQ, how often to sample the air or how to best process the data. We hope that the outcome of this project will be a set of equipment and proposals for a IAQ solution. There are many publications in this field and this project will aim to draw these together to propose an optimal solution.
