Dr Wu’s research area focuses on aeromicrobiology and indoor mycology. He has been studying the airborne survival of bacteria in response to different environmental conditions and the underlying mechanisms, as well as mechanisms regulating the responses to indoor moulds to transient moisture conditions.
