Professor Steven Rogak will review the fundamental sources and properties of aerosols (solids or liquids suspended in a gas), common methods of measurement (with a view to monitoring in buildings), and control methods (with a focus on filtration).

Professor Rogak is an expert on aerosol measurements and emissions. His focus has been on soot and nanoparticle emissions from combustion sources, as these are the particles most implicated in the human health impacts of air pollution. Human exposure to airborne contaminants is typically highest indoors, and this concern has led to research on transport of cough and sneeze particles (with Dr. Amir Aliabadi at University of Guelph), filtration (with Dr. James Montgomery) and the degradation of HVAC equipment from air pollution (leading the dPoint-Zehnder-UBC collaborative project). Professor Rogak is author of more than 70 peer reviewed papers on aerosols, is currently a member of the Editorial Advisory Board for Aerosol Science and Technology, and is on the Scientific Advisory Committee for FlareNet, a Canadian network of researchers quantifying the emissions from oil and gas production flaring emissions. Professor Rogak teaches in the areas of thermodynamics and building energy systems, and has twice been a supervisor for UBC’s winning ASHRAE Student Design competition teams.
