Research Fellow

Dr Joeri Coppens obtained his PhD in Environmental Technology at the Center for Microbial Ecology and Technology of Ghent University. Through his work on the development of novel biological processes for nitrogen and phosphorus recovery from used waters, he obtained a broad expertise in the nutrient cycle and environmental reactor technologies. Joeri combined his work related to the design and operation of innovative lab-scale and pilot-scale water treatment systems with research tools such as biokinetic parameter estimation, mass flow analysis modelling and microbial community analysis. At SCELSE, Joeri is working on the Used Water Treatment Project, which focuses on the implementation of mainstream autotrophic nitrogen removal at the Changi Water Reclamation Plant.
