Background and activities

M.Sc in Nanotechnology from NTNU in 2013. Currently working as a PhD at the Centre for Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR).

I primarily work with advanced microscopy techniques, to observe the intracellular interaction between mycobacteria and macrophages during infection. So far the focus has been on confocal microscopy, Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Focused Ion Beam/Scanning Electron Microscopy (FIB/SEM) tomography. Combined we hope that these techniques can give us a new insight into mycobacterial virulence, survival and killing within infected macrophages, and that this can contribute in the understanding of tuberculosis and related diseases.
