Paper Abstract


The following is a list of published peer-reviewed research, conference proceedings, and research patents produced or associated with the work of the IPtD Lab. 



Resilient Inference System for Performance Safety (RISPS)

Platt, L.S. First Inventor

Human-in-the-Loop (HITL) approach to applied Artificial Intelligence predicts infection-causing risks in inpatient healthcare environments and assesses the effectiveness of infection moderation strategies

Prevention Through Design Environmental
Material Intelligence Center (PtD-EMIC)

Platt, L.S. First Inventor

A decision-support tool for assessing interior material performance characteristics related to reducing bacterial bioburden. The system allows users to input performance data that informs design decisions to mitigate infection risk.
