PROJECT:Expertise includes aerosol/bioaerosols, air quality modeling, and machine learning (e.g. image recognition). We are building an experimental chamber and to test the filtration efficiency by size (from ~16 nm to ~500 nm) of various masks, including N95, KN95 and surgical masks. Due to the shortage of supplies, we have been also testing the reuse of masks, for example, the effects of different sterilization processes (such as H2O2, ClO2, UVI, etc.) and multiple cycles on the mask filtration efficiency by size. We can also do fit tests of other types of masks (such as 3D-printed masks).
