Background and activities

I currently work at the Department of Biology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology. My research interest is in the field of Aquaculture with the emphasize of water quality management. Extensive work with the eutrophication in freshwater systems and ammonia in tank aquaculture. Now, I'm broadening my expertise with seaweed aquaculture. I'm involved in the MACROSEA project, focus on the carbohydrate composition of sugar kelp.
