Background and activities
I have obtained my PhD degree in 2009, within the field of microbial biotechnology. Currently, I am working as a researcher at the Department of Biotechnology, NTNU.
My main research focus areas are bacterial transcriptional and translational regulation, synthetic biology/metabolic engineering and metagenome/biodiscovery.
I have been working with various organisms including E. coli, mesophilic and psychrophilic Pseudomonas sp., Streptomyces sp, Shewanella sp., Pseudoalteromonas sp., Synechocystis sp., lactic acid bacteria, and yeast. I am also one of the instructors of the iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) competition NTNU-Trondheim team.
The details and status of this year's project can be followed via iGEM wiki (the link will be available once the site is running). Stay tuned!
