Journal Article
Williams, B., Douglas, P., Roca Barcelo, A., Hansell, A., & Hayes, E. (2019). Estimating Aspergillus fumigatus exposure from outdoor composting activities in England between 2005 and 14. Waste Management, 84, 235-244. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.wasman.2018.11.044

Bioaerosols, ubiquitous in ambient air, are released in elevated concentrations from composting facilities with open-air processing areas. However, spatial and temporal variability of bioaerosols, particularly in relation to meteorology, is not well...

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. The aim of this study was to provide a simple, cost-effective, risk-based map of terrestrial areas in Ireland where environmental quality may be at risk from atmospheric ammonia. This risk-based approach identifies Natura 2000 si... Read More about Mapping ammonia risk on sensitive habitats in Ireland.

Scoping studies to establish the capability and utility of a real-time bioaerosol sensor to characterise emissions from environmental sources (2018)
Journal Article
Nasir, Z. A., Hayes, E., Williams, B., Gladding, T., Rolph, C., Khera, S., …Tyrrel, S. (2019). Scoping studies to establish the capability and utility of a real-time bioaerosol sensor to characterise emissions from environmental sources. Science of the Total Environment, 648, 25-32

A novel dual excitation wavelength based bioaerosol sensor with multiple fluorescence bands called Spectral Intensity Bioaerosol Sensor (SIBS) has been assessed across five contrasting outdoor environments. The mean concentrations of total and fluore...

Putting people at the heart of air quality management (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Chatterton, T., Hayes, E. T., Barnes, J., De Vito, L., Boushel, C., Husby, T., …Heves, G. (2018, March). Putting people at the heart of air quality management. Presented at Air Quality 2018: Science and Application

One of the key reasons why efforts to improve air quality have not been more successful across Europe has been the failure to elicit more political support at both national and local levels. This can be seen as being due, in no small part, to a failu... Read More about Putting people at the heart of air quality management.
