Background and activities
Galina Rodionova completed her master's degree in the field of Biotechnology (Wide Profile Chemistry) from the Arkhangelsk State Technical University, Russia in June 2008. She obtained her Ph.D in Chemical Process Technology (NTNU, 2011) under the supervision of Professor Øyvind Gregersen. The PhD study has been carried out within the scope of the joint project "Fiber based packaging materials: Development of innovative and sustainable barrier concepts (SustainBarrier)" initiated by the PFI, SINTEF and NTNU.
Galina joined the Ugelstad laboratory as a post-doctoral fellow in February 2012. Her research focuses on preparation and characterization of the synthetic reference fluids for crude oils and their emulsions.
