A team from IU is helping study indoor environments


IU professor and atmospheric scientist Philip Stevens is working with his graduate students in Texas to learn more about indoor environments, according to a press release from IU. 

The project is called HOMEChem, or House Observations of Microbial and Environmental Chemistry. HOMEChem was started and is being led by scientists from Colorado State University and University of Colorado, Boulder.

At the University of Texas at Austin, scientists will study indoor pollution in varying conditions in a manufactured home for the month of June, according to the release.

Working on the experiment with Stevens are two doctoral students in chemistry, Brandon Bottorff and Emily Reidy. A doctoral student in environmental science, Colleen Rosales, is also assisting.

Results from this study are anticipated to be shared at an indoor air conference in October.
