Suresh Dhaniyala, Clarkson University Professor of Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering, will present Airborne Disease and Aerosol: An Intimate Connection at the next Clarkson University Science Café on Wednesday, September 22 at 7:15 pm.
Due to COVID-19, we have all become very familiar with airborne disease and its implication for global health. To mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, public health officials have used a variety of tools, including masking, social distancing and, of course, vaccination. The effectiveness behind these mitigation tools has been widely debated in the popular press, but the science behind these measures is still poorly understood. Professor Suresh Dhaniyala (Mechanical & Aeronautical Engineering, Clarkson University) will discuss his research on bioaerosols, aerosol transport modeling and indoor air sensing and describe the intimate connection between aerosol science and airborne diseases.
Traditionally, Science Cafés have brought together local university and college professors and townspeople in relaxed, informal settings, such as coffeehouses and pubs. For the health and safety of all, we will continue with a virtual platform (ZOOM) for the fall 2021 talks. The speaker will make a short presentation about a topic in his or her field and, as always, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Not familiar with virtual event participation? We will use ZOOM which allows participants to connect with or without ZOOM installed on your device. Use the following link to access the Zoom Help Center, which offers information, instructions and assistance to new Zoom users. https://support.zoom.us
This ZOOM meeting link [required to access the meeting] will be used for all of the fall 2021 talks and is also available on our webpage http://www.clarkson.edu/sciencecafe.
