Background and activities

Jacob Lamb is originally from New Zealand where he got both his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Biochemistry at the University of Otago, where he worked in a research laboratory at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand with Associate Professor Julian Eaton-Rye and Associate Professor Martin Hohmann-Marriott. He came to Norway to undertake a PhD in Biotechnology under the supervision of Associate Professor Martin Hohmann-Marriott, which he completed in June 2016. 

His areas of expertise include photosynthesis, microbiology, biological and biochemical techniques, electronics and programming, renewable energy, energy storage, sensor technologies, optical spectroscopy and process engineering. His research motivation is to improve renewable energy sources, increase sustainability within agricultural and aquacultural industries, develop technologies for climate change mitigation as well as develop ways to measure, analyse, and optimize biological processes. Within ENERSENSE, Jacob is working with Sensor Instrumentation, Energy Storage and Energy Efficiency, with his main focus on designing and implementing sensor technologies for Biogas monitoring.
