Background and activities

My interests are in the use of systems biological approaches in order to explore and understand biological phenomena. More specifically, I am interested in metabolic modelling and its applications. I am currently working as a PhD candidate in biotechonology under the supervision of professor Eivind Almaas at the Department of Biotechnology and Food Science. I predominantly work on constraint-based metabolic models, both in their reconstruction as well as method development.
