Background and activities
5-year master program in Biotechnology (MSc), specialization in molecular biology. Master thesis within Food Chemistry in collaboration with SINTEF Ocean AS: "Increased utilization of egg-laying hens (Gallus gallus domesticus)".
My research involves improving the utilization of whitefish rest raw material by production of ingredients for human consumption, as part of the project OPTiMAT. The main focus is on enzymatic hydrolysis of rest raw material and up-concentration (membrane filtration) of bioactive peptides. I aim for a systemic approach to the problem. Communication with the whitefish industry, and a focus on the possibilities for industrialization of enabling technology, are thus central elements of my research.
