Indoor Air Quality


Jan 08, 2019: The paper "Pan, Y., Lin, C.-H., Wei, D., Chen, C.* Experimental measurements and large eddy simulation of particle deposition distribution around a multi-slot diffuser" has been accepted by Building and Environment. This work is supported by the Boeing Company. Congratulations to Yue!

Nov 19, 2018: Tongling Xia has passed her Ph.D. candidancy and qualifying exams (both written and oral). Her proposed thesis title is "Estimating and Controlling indoor PM2.5 of outdoor origin". She has published one paper in Building and Environment and another paper in Energy and Buildings. Congratulations to Tongling!

Oct 29, 2018: Prof. Chun Chen received a research fund from the Boeing Company. "Developing a new nozzle for reducing particle deposition in aircraft cabins - Phase II". The Boeing Company, Research and Development Project, No. 2018-GT-131, USD300,000 (~HKD2,351,000), 10/2018 to 12/2019.
