Research

Dr. Hoque’s research interests are on the development and application of mathematical models for fluid flow, pathogen dispersion and decontamination in the environmental system with the objective of informing risk assessors and first responders.  Her research goal is to establish predictive integrated frameworks through coupling detailed models, statistical methods and risk analysis for providing a priori information and design tools for a more sustainable and resilient urban and built environment. Recent studies have involved multi physics modeling applying computational fluid dynamics analysis for predicting bioaerosol transport and inactivation in indoor areas through neural networks and modeling and assessing health impacts of nano-additives in fuels in urban environment.
