<p><span><strong>From: </strong>Martin Hyde, TSI<br /><strong>Subject: </strong>TSI Webinar<br /><strong>Topic:</strong> This webinar would be valuable for the FM community to see how Fluids Mechanics Research and Aerosol science can work together to better understand the current challenges we are all facing with the coronavirus. TSI is somewhat unique having expertise is both FM and Aerosol instrumentation. The webinar will address both the Aerosol Science aspects and FM aspects of experimental measurements associated with learning more about how the virus spreads and the instrumentation that would be used to acquire that knowledge. <br /><strong>Details:</strong> <a href="https://www.tsi.com/discover-tsi/events/webinars/">https://www.tsi.com/discover-tsi/events/webinars/<br /></a><strong>Date</strong>: Wednesday 6th May</span></p>
