About Candace

Dr. Tsai’s research interests address diverse aspects of environmental health and safety and industrial hygiene in general, with a special focus on nanotechnology. She is pursuing important research in the areas of exposure assessment, occupational hygiene practices, sampling techniques, engineering controls, and biological effects associated with various airborne particle exposure. Her research involves innovative interdisciplinary collaborations. At this time, her primary research activities include: 1) occupational exposure assessment for airborne particles; 2) particle sampling techniques for mining workplace and advanced materials; 3) personal protective equipment and engineering control techniques for worker protection and pollution prevention including protective clothing, filtration, and local exhaust ventilation; 4) the use of computational fluid dynamic (CFD) models for aerosol exposure and flow simulation; 5) the biological response and nanomaterial distribution associated
