Adverse health effects from air pollutant exposure are a global issue. As they circulate throughout their daily indoor (e.g., working, studying, playing, exercising) and outdoor activities (e.g., driving, biking, walking), people inhale air that is likely to poorly resemble the outdoor air quality that is commonly reported by governmental agencies and weather stations. In order to accurately assess individual level exposure to environmental pollutants, and ultimately its impact on health and well-being, it is important to better understand exposure in diverse indoor and outdoor spaces throughout human daily cycles. The objective of this project is to improve the understanding of exposure levels to carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds and particulate matter, which will be done with a portable scientific instruments and samplers.
