Ph.D. Environmental Engineering Candidate
Alexander Schopf is a Ph.D. Environmental Engineering Candidate working on exploring ammonia removal through the use of the moving bed biofilm reactor (MBBR) technology. Specifically, his work includes quantifying inhibition of nitrifying biofilm using copper during long term operations, reactor optimization for efficient ammonia removal, achieving partial nitritation using high loaded reactors as well as work on anaerobic ammonium oxidation (anammox) reactor start-up. Alexander has an Undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Ottawa and is a member of the NSERC CREATE TECHNOMISE (Technologies in Microbiome Information Science and Engineering) training program. He has recently spent 3 months in Lund, Sweden working at AnoxKaldnes in the R&D department as part of a TECHNOMISE sponsored work rotation.
