Elliott Gall is a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at UT. He received his B.S. in Environmental Engineering from the University of Florida in 2006, and his M.S.E in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering from the University of Texas. At UT, his research concerns investigations of heterogeneous reactions of gaseous pollutants with surfaces in the indoor environment. He hopes to more fully elucidate the chemical and physical mechanisms that govern heterogeneous pollutant uptake with surfaces. Practically, he hopes to help achieve the dual goal of improving indoor air quality while reducing the energy burden of the built environment by identifying novel pollutant removing materials that purify air while consuming little or no energy.
