Nicola Carslaw is a Professor of indoor air chemistry at the University of York and a Fellow of the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ).
With her group, her research primarily involves numerical modelling of air pollution chemistry in the indoor environment, investigating the chemical processes that cause high concentrations of air pollutants indoors.
Current research focuses on indoor air pollution that results from the use of cleaning devices and surface cleaners, emissions from materials (e.g. furnishing) and humans (e.g. from skin and breath), as well as other activities associated with human occupancy (e.g. cooking and cleaning). We are also interested in understanding the role of light indoors and the increasingly important role that surfaces appear to play in modifying indoor air quality.
Through gaining this improved understanding such as through our activities in the INGENIOUS project, we hope to contribute to the design of mitigation measures that improve indoor air quality in our homes.
Jacqui leads WP 2b that is focused on making measurements of the air quality within 300 homes in Bradford. She is responsible for understanding the chemical composition of different types of particle sources and to help identify which sources lead to poor indoor air quality. She also supports WP 1. Jacqui is also Science Director of NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science).

Gordon works on measuring particulate composition and properties, modelling particulate formation and transformation, and understanding the impacts of various sorts of pollution on human health. His team helps characterise the particle composition in the homes sampled in WP2 and understand the transformation of indoor particulate pollution using models in WP4. He leads WP5 aiming to quantify health impacts of indoor air pollution. He also leads a Clean Air consortium characterising the relative toxicity of different pollution sources, providing a "hazard ranking".
Chantelle is a behavioural scientist at the University of Sheffield. Chantelle is leading WP6, which focuses on understanding and overcoming barriers to behaviours that could reduce production of or exposure to indoor air pollution. She is also involved in WP7, supporting the translation of the research into real-world impact.
James is an NCAS (National Centre for Atmospheric Science) research fellow working in the area of atmospheric oxidants in the Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories, University of York.
Pete’s interests include the role of chlorine as an atmospheric oxidant, and his group make measurements of key chlorine containing compounds in order to quantify its impact. Many cleaning products can result in the release of chlorinated compounds to indoor atmospheres, and Pete will investigate this as part of the WP1 experiments. Pete also has an interest in low-cost air pollution sensor technologies, and will contribute to the WP2 sensor deployment.
