Tracy Thatcher studies pollutant transport into and within both commercial and residential buildings. Her research focuses on experimental studies which investigate the physical processes governing the movement of gases and aerosols. This work has important applications in the reduction of human exposure to air pollutants.
Before joining the Cal Poly Faculty, she held positions as a scientist at a DOE National Lab and as an environmental engineer at a semi-conductor manufacturing facility.
