Davi is a Ph.D. Student in the Department of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at UBC Vancouver. His work aims to mitigate the air quality impacts of the emerging cannabis industry through measuring and modelling concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Ozone (O3), and particulate matter (PM) downwind of the facilities. Additionally, he will analyze odour reports and investigate the public health impacts of cannabis industry emissions and the distribution of these impacts in the context of environmental justice. On the personal aspect, Davi enjoys playing chess, writing, playing the guitar/keyboard, and swimming.
