Congratulations to Dr. Peeyush Khare on his Ph.D. defense! Nice work by the group on his Mainz-style hat!
Our new paper from the Yale CEID on mask testing during the COVID-19 shutdown is out in Nature’s JESEE. Still testing in the CEID (Center for Engineering Innovation & Design) today with over 100 masks tested now!
Additional info on our accessible mask testing setup and PPE results are posted at covid.yale.edu/innovation/med& Proud to have worked on this with Kate, Larry, & the CEID papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf to support frontline healthcare workers.
Our survey of an actual hospital PPE inventory shows that with the influx of non-certified masks, not all “real” masks function properly. These aren’t just alternative/homemade masks, but masks that purportedly function as an N95 mask.

Proud to have worked on this with Kate Schilling, Larry Wilen, all our other awesome co-authors, & the CEID to support frontline healthcare workers. We hope communities with limited testing resources around the globe can use this for data-driven PPE decision-making.
