Sarka Langer

Adjunct Professor at Chalmers, Architecture and Civil Engineering, Building Services Engineering

Sarka Langer conducts research on air quality and chemistry and chemical loads in indoor environments such as dwellings, energy efficient buildings, day-care centers and ships. Further research focuses on emissions of organic substances from construction products and the formation of secondary chemical compounds from the interaction between the materials and ozone. Her main employment is researcher and project manager at IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute in Gothenburg.
