Good indoor environments are a vital element of building sustainability. The benefits of a healthy indoor environment with well-managed indoor air quality (IAQ) include increased occupant health, productivity, and well-being.
The mission of the Indoor Environment Research Group is to conduct research that promotes healthier and more energy efficient buildings. It is led by Dr. Michael Waring, a faculty member in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering (CAEE) in the College of Engineering (COE) at Drexel University.
Dr. Waring and his research team investigate indoor air and environmental quality issues pertaining to:
- Indoor chemistry and aerosol formation and mitigation practices
- Low energy, IAQ-enhancing sustainable ventilation strategies for buildings
- Indoor microbial community response to environmental stimuli
If you want to join forces to create the next-generation of healthy and sustainable buildings, either as a researcher within the group or as an affiliated partner or sponsor, we’d love to hear from you.
