Particle Resuspension Dynamics in Infant Near-Floor Microenvironments
November 5, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
House dust is saturated with a diversity of microbes and allergens. Early-life inhalation exposures to the microbial and allergenic content of indoor dust can play a significant role in both the development of and protection against asthma and allergic diseases. This webinar hosted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will discuss how crawling infants can stir up and resuspend concentrated clouds of particulate matter from floor dust and the implications of early-life microbial exposures.
The webinar presenter is Brandon Boor, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering and Environmental and Ecological Engineering (by courtesy), Purdue University. Dr. Boor received his doctorate in Civil Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin in 2015 with a focus on indoor air quality research.
