Jeseth Delgado Vela

Doctoral Candidate

University of Michigan

I am currently working under the supervision of Dr. Nancy G. Love and Dr. Gregory J. Dick.  I am investigating low-energy biofilm reactors for nitrogen removal from domestic wastewater that has been treated anaerobically. I am using both lab-scale reactors and biofilm modeling to elucidate the microbial mechanisms and sustainability tradeoffs in removing nitrogen from anaerobically treated domestic wastewater. I am also a trainee in the Integrated Training in Microbial Systems program.
