Communicating Clean Air Research-Clean Air Day Event 2021

Date: 17th June 2021

Time: 12:00-13:00

Location: Register via Eventbrite, meeting on Zoom

Speakers: Charlotte Zamboni, Global Action Plan; Lukasz Walasek, Warwick University; Mike Morrision, Michigan State University

Abstract: 

As part of Clean Air Day 2021, we ask how the research community can 'translate' air quality science into messaging, media stories and social media campaigns that cut through to the public, and enable them to join the conversation and take action.

Clean Air Day is focused on improving public understanding of air pollution and building awareness of how air pollution impacts our health. This event is organised jointly by the the six SPF-Clean Air funded air quality networks.

The event will be hosted by Prof Cath Noakes, Professor of Environmental Engineering for Buildings at the University of Leeds.

Speakers as follows:

Charlotte Zamboni, Marketing Director, Global Action Plan: Playing on the positive - Turning clean air research into compelling communications

Lukasz Walasek, University of Warwick: How do we turn communications into action? Insights from behavioural science.

Mike Morrison, Michigan State University: Learn some user-experience design principles to help you get your science out there!

There will be plenty of time for discussion and to explore ideas with the panel.

Title: "Modeling consortium for chemistry of indoor environments (MOCCIE): integrating chemical processes from molecular to room scales"

Abstract: I present on the development of the MOCCIE that connects models over a range of spatial and temporal scales, from molecular to room scales and from sub-nanosecond to days, respectively. Our modeling approaches include molecular dynamics simulations, kinetic process modeling, gas-phase chemistry modeling, organic aerosol modeling, and computational fluid dynamics simulations. These models are applied to investigate ozone reactions with skin and clothing, oxidation of volatile organic compounds and formation of secondary organic aerosols, and mass transport and partitioning of indoor species to surfaces. This development establishes a framework to integrate different modeling tools and experimental measurements, opening up an avenue for development of comprehensive and integrated models with representations of various chemistry in indoor environments.
