About Us

The Respiratory Protection Engineering Task Force is a research team conducting a series of studies to address the critical need for face mask research in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The team brings together researchers from a range of disciplines to examine fit, materials, testing, and user behaviour issues related to face masks.

 

The Respiratory Protection Engineering Task Force is a research team set up by Eugenia O'Kelly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The team brings together researchers from a range of disciplines to study respiratory protective equipment. Research topics include fabric face coverings, clinical protective equipment (e.g. FFP3 masks, N95 masks, surgical masks), fit testing and mask-wearing behaviours. The task force is born out of the Healthcare Design Group in the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge and uses a systems approach to answer its research questions.
