Jon Abbatt
is a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Toronto. He obtained his PhD in atmospheric and physical chemistry from Harvard, did a postdoc at MIT, and has been a faculty member in both the University of Chicago and Toronto. His research interests are largely driven by the different ways that multiphase chemistry affects the atmosphere, through both reactive processes and cloud formation mechanisms. His research group works in both the lab and the field, in particular in remote regions such as forested environments and the high Arctic. His recent interest in the chemistry of the indoor environment has arisen through the overlaps that exist in the heterogeneous chemistry that occurs both indoors and outdoors.






Manabu Shiraiwa is a Research Group leader in the Multiphase Chemistry Department at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry Mainz, Germany. He has worked at California Institute of Technology as a JSPS postdoc fellow (2012-2013). He has received PhD in August 2011 from Max Planck Graduate Center-Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. His current scientific research are focused on the properties and interactions of bioaerosols and their effects on atmospheric chemistry and human health. His interests are especially on kinetic modeling and experiments on gas uptake and chemical transformation of atmospheric bioaerosols and organic aerosols.

Isabella Annesi-Maesano is Research Director at the French NIH (INSERM). Since 2006, she head, the Department of Epidemiology of allergic and respiratory diseases at the Institute Pierre Louis of Epidemiology and Public Health of INSERM and Université Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris. Presently, she is Professor of Environmental Epidemiology at Université Diderot and UPMC in Paris Her research questions include the health effects of indoor and outdoor air pollution through an accurate objective assessment of individual exposure to air pollutants and health phenotypes. In this respect, her field surveys targeted health effects of various air pollutants in individuals in urban and rural areas, dwellings, schools and nursing homes. A particular attention in her work is given to the prediction of air pollutants concentration through sources which can be very useful in the absence of objective assessments, and to multi-pollutant mixture exposure. Dr Annesi-Maesano is a respiratory epidemiologist by training through a PhD, a DSc and a post-doc (Department of Public Health Sciences at St George’s Hospital, London) in Epidemiology and Public Health. She graduated in Physics (Rome) and Medicine (Paris). Presently, she is Associate Editor of 7 international journals.

After working as a postdoctoral researcher at University of California Irvine and University of Heidelberg, he joined the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at University of California Los Angeles as a faculty member in 1999, where he currently serves as professor and chair. His research group studies the chemical and meteorological processes controlling nocturnal boundary layer composition, and the chemistry of reactive nitrogen species and reactive halogen species in the atmosphere using observations and model calculations.







Nicola Carslaw is a Reader in Air Pollution at the University of York. Her research interests are in the general fields of atmospheric and indoor air chemistry, using detailed chemical models to investigate chemical processing that occurs both indoors and outdoors. Her atmospheric modelling work focused on radical chemistry and this has also been of interest in indoor environments. The indoor studies have also investigated routes to the formation of key secondary pollutants indoors such as particulate matter, as well as the composition of indoor air pollution following cleaning activities. The eventual aim is to highlight species that may be of relevance to health. Her expertise has recently been recognised through her appointment onto the UK Department of Health COMEAP (Commitee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollution).
