Wladyslaw Jan Kowalski, Researcher with the Indoor Environment Center (IEC) of Pennsylvania State University, holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Architectural Engineering. He has extensive experience in the designing and installing of air cleaning systems in commercial buildings and health care facilities. Consulted on numerous projects involving biodefense retrofits, mold remediation, nosocomial infection control, and residential air cleaning systems. He has assisted various equipment manufacturers with the design and testing of UVGI, filtration, ozone, ionization, and other air disinfection systems and provided support for various private, commercial, and government projects internationally. Dr. Kowalski has contributed chapters to the HVAC Handbook (McGraw-Hill) and the HVAC Design Manual for Hospitals and Clinics (ASHRAE). His first book, "Immune Building Systems Technology," has received wide acclaim internationally and has become a major source book in the field of bioterrorism defense technology. Dr. Kowalski consults on air cleaning construction and retrofit projects through Immune Building Systems, Inc. (IBSI) of New York, and speaks at international conferences on issues related to disease control and biodefense. He is currently chairman of the Air Treatment Group of the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) with whom he is developing a series of standards and guidelines for air treatment systems in collaboration with ASHRAE, ARI, and other professional societies.
