James McKelvey Scool of Engineering

Department of Energy, Environmental and Chemical Engineering

The Jay Turner group applies science tools such as monitoring and modeling to air quality planning and management and human exposure.  We also work on green engineering including life cycle assessments for processes and products. Our efforts lean towards applied research with applications to the interface between engineering and policy, and also health effects of air pollution.
