About Us

Who We Are

The Indoor Environment Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab performs cutting-edge research to advance health, productivity and energy efficiency in the built environment.

We work hard to expand our understanding of pollutant sources and dynamics, and to inform the development and deployment of energy-efficient ventilation and air cleaning technologies with the goal of reducing exposures in homes, commercial buildings and other modern human habitats.

What We Do

Utilizing funding from a variety of sources, including government and industry, we focus on nine research areas:

  • Healthy Homes
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Health and Productivity
  • Ventilation and Air Cleaning
  • Pollutant Sources and Exposures
  • Smoking and Vaping
  • Air Quality Sensors
  • Chem-Bio Preparedness
  • Cookstoves
