James Montgomery

Welcome to our new Visitor, James Montgomery, a PhD candidate at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. He is currently visiting the Centre for 6 months  funded through a TEE Doctoral Mobility Scholarship. While in Cambridge he will be working on the development of a new Masters Degree in Engineering Leadership and Sustainability at UBC and facilitating ties between the University of Cambridge and UBC. His research activities while in Cambridge will consist of ESEM investigations of the impact of changes in relative humidity on salt nanoparticle agglomerate structures and modeling the effects of building air filter installation changes on indoor air quality and energy consumption.
