WHAT THE WEBINAR IS ABOUT:
Aerosols generated by e-cigarettes can be challenging to characterize. Given their volatility, chemical complexity, and high concentration, making accurate measurements can be difficult. This webinar will discuss the benefits and limitations of various experimental techniques researchers can use when confronting these challenges, and provide examples of published research for this application.
- Date: 8 July
- Time: 8:00 AM (CDT) / 3:00 PM (CEST) / 6:30 PM (IST)
- Duration: 1 hour
ABOUT THE SPEAKERS:
Dr. Sherrie Elzey has worked in the field of particle measurements and instrumentation for over 15 years. She earned her Ph.D. from The University of Iowa, where she researched nanoparticle characterization methods for applications in environmental, health, and safety studies. She held a postdoctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST), where her research focused on combining physical and chemical characterization methods to study prototype nanoparticle-based medicines. As a Regional Manager for TSI’s Particle Instruments, she works with customers in academia, government, and industry to understand their measurement challenges and deliver solutions.
Dr. Andrea J. Tiwari is an aerosol engineer with over 10 years of experience working with airborne particles in a variety of environments. She earned her Ph.D. in 2014 at Virginia Tech, where she studied with Dr. Linsey Marr. Dr. Tiwari’s dissertation research focused on the generation and chemical reactions of aerosolized carbon-based nanoparticles. She has published her scientific research in Environmental Science: Nano; Aerosol Science & Technology; Environmental Science & Technology; Journal of Environmental Quality; and Science of the Total Environment. As an Applications Engineer at TSI Incorporated, she regularly works with customers in universities, government, and industries from around the globe to help them solve their aerosol-related challenges.
