Ryth Kesselring at Arduino Day

Analyzing the humidity factor to expand Face Mask Research.

Ryth Kesselring is part of the face mask research group founded by professor Ann-Louise Davidson and Professor Barbara Layne in collaboration with the IRSST team of the Filtration Aerosol Laboratory in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kesselring investigate different natural materials and their filtration efficiency in order to design sustainable alternatives to the polypropylene face mask. Within her project she is using Arduino and other electronic components to analyze the impact of humidity on the materials used for designing cloth face masks. Her wearable prototype is collecting data directly in the face mask while the wearer is working and the collected data is analyzed in order to get a better understanding of the behaviour of the chosen materials in a “real life” setting.
