Carson uses low-cost sensors for widespread air quality monitoring in urban environments. He works with AUG Signals to develop and deploy AirSENCE inexpensive air quality meters for smart city applications. Carson’s research focuses on improving the accuracy of AirSENCE’s air quality monitoring capabilities using statistical and machine learning methods.
Cuilian graduated with a BASc in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Environmental Engineering and certificate in Engineering Business from the University of Toronto in 2020. She is currently working on determining the oxidative potential of particulate matter from ambient air samples to investigate the links between oxidative potential and their sources.
Marcia is an MASc candidate from Mexico City, Mexico. She obtained her BSc in Chemical Engineering from Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico. Marcia is currently working on the chemical composition and health effects of biomass burning emissions.
Dana graduated with her B.ASc in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto in 2018. She uses different methods to measure the oxidative potential of fine particulate matter to confirm its use as a more health relevant metric than mass concentration in Canada. She is currently working on measuring the oxidative potential of ambient air samples from across Canada as part of the OPERA project.
Meguel graduated with a BASc in Chemical Engineering degree from the University of Waterloo in 2020. During this time, he worked as a research assistant for academic institutions and government agencies. He is currently working on deploying a low-cost sensor network in the Alberta oil sands region to investigate its applicability to track air pollution from a variety of sources.
