Airborne Particle Dynamics in the Built Environment


May 10, 2021: Yue Pan passed his Ph.D. oral exam. His thesis title is "Study of particle deposition in turbulent airflow in the built environment". During the Ph.D. study, Yue has published four high-quality journal papers. Congratulations to Dr. Pan!  

Apr 09, 2021: Our paper "Bian, Y., Wang, S., Zhang, L.*, Chen, C.* (2020). Influence of fiber diameter, filter thickness, and packing density on PM2.5 removal efficiency of electrospun nanofiber air filters for indoor applications. Building and Environment, 170, 106628." has been identified as Highly Cited Paper by Web of Science.

Mar 26, 2021: The paper "Yu, X., Chen, C.* (2021). Coupling spectral-dependent radiative cooling with building energy simulation" has been accepted by Building and Environment. Congratulations to Xinxian!

Mar 18, 2021: The paper "Wang, L.^, Bian, Y.^, Lim, C.K., Lee P.K.H., Chen, C.*, Zhang, L.*, Daoud, W.A.*, Zi, Y.* (2021). Tribo-charge enhanced hybrid air filter masks for efficient particulate matter capture with greatly extended service life" has been accepted by Nano Energy. 

Mar 15, 2021: The paper "Pan, Y., Chen, C.* (2021). Exploring the relationship between particle deposition and near-wall turbulence quantities in the built environment." has been accepted by Building and Environment. Congratulations to Yue!
