RESEARCH CLUSTER IN AIRBORNE DISEASE TRANSMISSION
Associate Professor, School of Health and Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Health and Social Development, UBC Okanagan
Associate Professor, Mechanical, School of Engineering, Faculty of Applied Science, UBC Okanagan
This research group is aiming to break the chain of airborne disease transmission in healthcare facilities.
This cross-campus team of researchers is developing infection isolation and removal solutions and devices designed to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 and other airborne illnesses in healthcare settings. Working in close collaboration with partners in diverse clinical settings, this expert team of researchers aims to break the transmission of respiratory infections to make healthcare delivery safer.
Cluster members have expertise in fluid science, multiphase flows/aerosol/droplet dynamics, health/immunology/clinical trials, air quality simulation, biofluid mechanics, assistive health technology, dentistry, public health, epidemiology, surgery and anesthesiology.
