Lecture Synopsis: Air pollution has a significant impact on public health even in a country with fairly clean air such as Canada. While we all want to breathe clean air, it is our everyday actions and decisions that contribute to air pollution. This talk, delivered by Professor Amir Hakami from Carleton’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, will explore how the impact of air pollution on public health can be quantified, and how it can be linked to our everyday activities, particularly within the context of efforts to mitigate climate change.

About the Series: Ingenious Talks is a special speaker series from the Faculty of Engineering and Design that engages the community in discussions of timely and innovative ideas in engineering, design and technology.
