Dustin Poppendieck

Environmental Engineer, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Dustin Poppendieck is an environmental engineer at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He is interested in how building materials, building envelopes, low energy building designs, air filtration, infiltration, ventilation, and HVAC system operation can interact and affect indoor chemistry. His research involves characterizing primary emission sources, reactions at material surfaces and ozone influenced air chemistry. He has investigated emissions from kerosene can lamps, spray polyurethane foam, and non-smoldering cigarette butts.  He has examined the impacts of air cleaners and high concentrations of gaseous disinfectants on indoor chemistry. He received his PhD in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Texas at Austin.
