Link to WANG LAB

Measure and assess emission and exposure of aerosols and gases from conventional and emerging sources. Develop innovative methodologies to quantify cytotoxicity, oxidative potential, and respiratory deposition of ultrafine aerosols and nanoparticles. Design next-generation sensory detection, engineering control, and PPE to reduce inhalation exposure to airborne toxins. Study occupational-related stress and how it relates to workers exposure. Utilize interdisciplinary approach to solve environmental and occupational health issues related to vulnerable wroker populations.
