Ir. Antonella Piaggio
I am Antonella. I completed my bachelor degree in civil Engineer at Uruguay, and my MSc. In Enviromental Science at IHE-Delft. I specialized in the fields related to urban water, drinking and wastewater management. I used to work in urban water plans and flood risk management back in Uruguay.
Since I started my PhD at TU-Delft in July 2017, my main research focus is on anaerobic wastewater treatment framed as part of LOTUSHR project. The project has a holistic water management approach for the recovery of water, energy and nutrients from urban wastewater (drain). My research is related to the first stage of the treatment, using Dissolved Air Flotation and Anaerobic Digestion. My main focus is on the effect of limited aeration of anaerobic sludge.
