RMIT University PhD Scholarship in Indoor Air Quality in Schools in Australia for 2022/2023

This PhD Scholarship in Indoor Air Quality in Schools will investigate and evaluate various indoor air quality strategies, such as air filtration devices.

Pollution exposure during childhood can have long-term effects, some of which may not manifest until later in life, leaving youngsters helpless in the face of poor air quality.

There has been a heightened attention on air quality in schools as a result of the Covid -19 pandemic. Furthermore, extreme weather events such as heat waves, thunderstorms, and bushfires, as well as purposeful burning before fire season, are becoming more widespread as a result of climate change, resulting in phenomena such as increased smoke vapor that impairs IAQ in classrooms.

The implications of such occurrences on IAQ are not well understood.

It will target schools in a variety of settings, including those affected by road pollution, residential wood burning, and wildfire smoke.
