We are all familiar with airborne transmission of disease because of COVID-19 and with six-foot spacing for social distancing. The terminology of airborne transmission and social distancing have a long history with past diseases, including measles and TB. In this course, I will discuss some basics of airborne disease transmission, past efforts to control this transmission mode and the future engineering approaches that can help minimize the possibility of a pandemic like COVID-19. 

Suresh Daniyala is professor in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering in Clarkson University. His research interests are in the fields of air pollution, airborne biological particles, and sensors. His recent projects have focused on understanding the diversity of airborne microbial populations and in determining their transport characteristics in indoor spaces.
