Background and activities
My background is from the Master Programme in Nanotechnology at NTNU where my main profile was Bionanotechnology. I did my Masters thesis in part at the Department of Physics (IFY) and in part at the Centre of Molecular Inflammation Research (CEMIR). I made extensive use of advanced fluoresence microscopy techniques to investigate cell-nanopillar interactions (IFY) and examine trafficking of the immune system receptors Toll-like receptors (CEMIR).
Currently I am a PhD fellow at the Department of Clinical and Molecular Medicine (IKOM) where I am working in the research group of Professor Trude Helen Flo at CEMIR. One of the main themes in the research group is host-pathogen interactions during Mycobacterium Tuberculosis infection of human cells. The title of my project is: ""Catch the moment": A nanostructured platform for imaging biological processes at ultimate spatial and temporal resolution". My research is focused on using correlative light electron microscopy (CLEM) to investigate single cells.
