About Natalia Mykhaylova

Natalia has a background in engineering, chemistry and design. She is a graduate of Etobicoke School of Arts, has a B. Sc. In Pharmaceutical Chemistry and a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Toronto. Her PhD work involves the development of novel devices and adaptable wireless networks for air pollution monitoring and targets a major unmet need - access to a reliable, low-cost and high time resolution device for measuring the air we breathe. She provided consulting services to community organisations working with environmental data sources with Envirolytics and conducted community air pollution research projects with Toronto Cancer Prevention Coalition. She also developed a software solution, Ease, that makes use of traffic data to reduce city congestion and the associated carbon emissions. Ease was a winner of 1st place at Climate Hack-To-Action sponsored by Brookfield Institute as well as a winner of Toronto Climathon. She started a research initiative to develop technologies that would not only track air pollution but also purify the air we breathe. She co-founded Cleanopy Inc. and has developed a unique portable device for children that offers continuous indoor and outdoor protection from air pollution.
