Hats off to PhD student Colby Buehler for his indoor air quality analysis under future building energy efficiency scenarios, out now in Science Advances. Was great to collaborate with Economics Prof. Ken Gillingham from Yale School of the Environment on this multidisciplinary EPA SEARCH Center paper, along with Pei Huang (now at the Leibniz Centre for European Economic Research) and Prof. Jordan Peccia (Yale Chemical & Environmental Engineering).
A big congratulations to undergraduate researcher Megan He, who recently received a Goldwater Fellowship for her work on our measurements from the Environment and Climate Change Canada flight campaign (https://goldwater.scholarsapply.org/2021-scholar-press-release/). Way to go Megan!
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.
