Dr. AJ Prussin

Dr. AJ Prussin attended Virginia Tech for his B.S. in Biochemistry and Ph.D. in Plant Pathology. He received an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation postdoctoral fellowship in the Microbiology of the Built Environment (MoBE) Program, to study the seasonal dynamics of the airborne microbial communities in a daycare center.
He is now a Research Scientist and the Associate Director of the Center for Science and Engineering of the Exposome (SEE). The overall goal of SEE is to harness engineering approaches to develop a fundamental understanding of the human exposome and the means to control it for the purpose of advancing public health, energy savings, and water sustainability.
Dr. Prussin’s work applies an interdisciplinary approach to answer questions regarding the aerobiology and airborne transmission of pathogenic and non-pathogenic microbes in the built environment.
