Welcome to the Tata Center Air Quality Project website!

We are a group of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who use low-cost sensors to learn about the formation, evolution, and transport of pollutants in Earth's atmosphere. Through our understanding of how these types of sensors work, we develop methods to improve them through new calibration strategies and algorithms.

In the end, we strive to provide reliable, accurate, realtime information in a transparent manner.

Current Projects

India Sensors

Urban AQ, India

Through the Tata Center at MIT, we have been developing multi-pollutant air quality sensors for the India context since 2014. Most of our work thus far has been devoted to ensuring long-term reliability through co-location with regulatory and research-grade instruments.
