Considering everyday air contaminants in extraordinary times

On this episode of VIEW to the U air-pollution scientist Assistant Professor Matthew Adams, who has been on faculty in UTM’s Department of Geography since 2017, talks about his research, which focuses on our exposure to air contaminants in urban environments.

He talks about some of the impacts reduced traffic in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Ontario has had on urban environments due to schools and several businesses being shut down.

Matthew also talks about the ways in which the current pandemic has shifted some of his lab’s work, and changes he hopes to see in urban behaviour going forward.
