Research Interests

Air Pollution & Health Research Group

The focus of Prashant’s research is to understand the impact of both conventional and emerging air pollutants from transport, industrial and non-vehicle sources on air quality, public health and the built infrastructure, in order to develop engineering driven solutions and regulatory strategies for their mitigation. A major thrust area of his research is atmospheric aerosols and nanoparticles, their physicochemical characterisation and measurement using advanced instrumentation, dispersion modelling with numerical, wind tunnel and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tools for developing simple dispersion models for vehicle wake, street and city scales. In general, his overall research efforts fall under the following themes:

(i) Atmospheric ultrafine/nanoparticles and aerosols

  • Behaviour, fate and exposure assessment of airborne nano/ultrafine particles and aerosols
  • Measurements, emission and dispersion modelling at very fine (vehicle wake), street and city scales
  • Characterisation of emissions from non-vehicle sources (e.g., building construction and demolition activities)
  • Personal exposure modelling in transport microenvironments
  • Particle dispersion in indoor environments
  • Indoor/outdoor exchange of particles

(ii) Urban Air Quality

  • Air pollution modelling and exposure assessment (traffic intersections, street canyons and cities)
  • Vehicular emission modelling for cities/megacities
  • Air pollution impacts on the sustainability of built infrastructure
  • Energy-pollution nexus for urban buildings/cities/megacities
  • Environmental sustainability of growing cities/megacities
  • Air pollution sensing

(iii) Wind Engineering

  • Wind flows and pollutant dispersion in urban areas
  • Wind loading on tall buildings and aerodynamics of bridges
  • Wind flow characteristics around wind turbines
