Miguel Mauricio

Assistant Professor

I am a Chemical Engineer (Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, 2006) and hold a PhD in Food Technology (Université de Montpellier, 2009). After a 4-year postdoctoral period at the Technical University of Denmark, I joined the Biogroup as a Marie Curie IEF fellow in 2014. My research career has consistently focused on the application of mathematical modelling to solve real problems in chemical and biochemical engineering. My latest interests deal with modelling anaerobic fermentation at metabolic level, data analysis for the optimisation of energy efficiency in WWTPs and modelling and control of advanced wastewater treatment.
