Students at Insplorion: Air Quality

22 Apr 2020

Hello everyone!

I am Damien Pierce and I’m pleased to be working as part of the Insplorion team. My master thesis project involves investigating the effect of Nitrogen Dioxide and Ozone on the air quality sensors. I find nanotechnology fascinating, the idea that materials previously thought of as thoroughly researched take on a whole new behaviour at the nanoscale, it’s a whole new world and fun to explore what we can achieve at the nanoscale.

This fits my personality very well; I am always fascinated by how something works and spend a lot of my time outside of work restoring and collecting everything from vintage audio equipment to fountain pens. If I can take something apart and find out how it works, I will probably do it eventually!

My commitment to being more sustainable is another reason Insplorion is an inspiring place to work at. With the looming threat of climate change, I am glad to be contributing what I can to the development of air quality sensors in order to better understand this worrying phenomenon.
