CIMLAE student, Pelumi Oluwasanya, received an award for his talk at the International Conference on Pollution Control and Sustainable Environment in London, on 6 October, 2017.
His talk, which won Best Paper in the Young Research Forum category, presented the view on 'Particulate matter monitoring - past, present and future'. He covered the benefits and challenges of sensors used in the past and at present, the developmental stages of current research grade sensors and his ongoing PhD work in this field. His research aims to address the challenge of bad air quality by designing and developing a miniaturised and cost-effective sensor for monitoring the fine particles that are particularly dangerous for human health.
We look forward to following Pelumi's research in the future. Watch this website, or our social media accounts, to keep up to date with his work.
