Clarkson SARS-CoV-2 Webinar Series:

Computational Modeling of Aerosol Transport Resuspension of Viruses and other Biological particles from Surfaces and Clothing

Presenter: Andrea Ferro, PhD

June 17, 2020 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm EDT

Particle resuspension could be an exposure pathway for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Resuspension has already proven to be important for exposure to other bioaerosols in occupied indoor environments. In addition, early findings during the COVID-19 pandemic indicate that the virus is prevalent in areas with high human activity and low ventilation, such as changing rooms in hospitals. This webinar will examine resuspension as a potential exposure pathway and identify areas that require more attention to better characterize this source.

Andrea Ferro is a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Clarkson University, the associate director for research for the Clarkson Institute for a Sustainable Environment, and the current president of the American Association for Aerosol Research. Her work focuses on human exposure to airborne pollutants, and she has published extensively in the area of particle adhesion and resuspension.

Webinar will start promptly at 3 p.m.  Feel free to join Zoom link at 2:45 p.m.
