Professor in biotechnology at the Dept. Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science. I am heading "Laboratory of microbial gene technology and food microbiology" that consists of approximately 20 members (staff members, technicians,and students). During the last 20 years my research has been focused on lactica acid bacteria with a focus on bacteriocins of lactic acid bacteria.These studies have included purification and chemical and genetic characterization of such peptides followed by biosynthesis
Geneticist and Microbiologist with research focus on Archaea. Professor of Genetics in Ecology (Faculty of Life Sciences/University of Vienna, Austria) and associate professor of the Center of Geobiology (University of Bergen/Norway).
Post doc. in the SysMO-LAB2 project from August 2010. I work at Nofima and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) at Ås, Norway. My focus in SysMO-LAB2 will be on four Lactobacillus plantarum strains, diversity analysis, omics-technologies, genome scale modelling.
Background: Ph.D. in Molecular Microbiology June 2010, where I worked with Lactobacillus sakei, metabolism and diversity studies.
