About Me

I am an ETH environmental engineer and PhD student in the Process Engineering department of Eawag since July 2016, under the supervision of Dr. Nicolas Derlon and advised by Prof. Eberhard Morgenroth. I am interested in the development of innovative technologies for biological wastewater treatment. I make use of engineering approaches, mathematical modelling and microbiological tools in order to get a better understanding of fundamental mechanisms that ultimately govern the performances of new technologies in biological wastewater treatment.
