Background and activities

Master of Science in Aquatic Food Production - Safety and Quality.

Master thesis in "The Effect of Osmotic Pressure on Rigor Mortis in Salmonids".  

As part of the OPTiMAT project, the overall idea of my PhD project is to examine the effect of chilling technologies on water holding properties and processability of Atlantic salmon throughout the whole value chain, from whole fish to primary and seconday processed fillets.
