Fighting Air Pollution

posted on July 29, 2014

In an effort to fight the serious and growing problem of air pollution in China, a team of faculty from the University of Minnesota, together with Chinese researchers, met in May to collaborate on ways to address health issues related to this pollution. Of special interest are very small particulates in the atmosphere. MSI Principal Investigator David Pui, a Distinguished McKnight Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering (College of Science and Engineering), convened the group, which was led by University President Eric Kaler and CSE Dean Steven Crouch. Professor Pui uses MSI for several projects related to numerical studies of particle filtration. You can read a story about this project on the University of Minnesota Foundation’s news site
