In the U.S., we monitor and regulate outdoor air pollutants, but spend most of our time indoors. The microenvironments where we spend our time, such as kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and vehicles, host a variety of air pollution sources. As a result, the indoor air quality is different from, and often worse than, the outdoor air quality. We will discuss major sources of indoor air pollution, the impact of weatherization and energy efficiency on indoor air quality, and the value of new, inexpensive sensors for monitoring air quality.

Andrea Ferro is a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Clarkson University. She is also a registered professional engineer, and the current president of the American Association for Aerosol Research.
