Davi is a Ph.D. Candidate 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 by measuring concentrations of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Ozone (O3), and particulate matter (PM) indoors and downwind of the facilities. Additionally, he will analyze odour reports and investigate the public health impacts of cannabis industry emissions compared to other odorous sources in Metro Vancouver. On a personal aspect, Davi enjoys playing chess, writing, hiking, playing the guitar/keyboard, and swimming.
