In this work, the impact of low relative humidity (corresponding to cold climate winter conditions) on human productivity will be assessed using quantitative techniques for human cognition and performance. Humidity and moisture level within offices during winter months tend to be low, and is known to lead to physiological effects such as drying of mucous membranes (Pfluger et al., 2010). Prior studies have assessed the potential correlation between low indoor moisture levels and induced sickness (Sundell and Lindvall, 1993; Sato, et al., 2003). In collaboration with Usha Satish.
