Biography Ragnhild Dragøy Whitaker

I work as research director for the marine biotechnology (MB) group at Nofima. In this group, we focus on the optimal exploitation of side streams and unused marine biomass. Side streams or by-products is a collective term that is often used to describe the biomass that is not part of the conventional fish or shellfish product. We work constantly to ensure that the valuable components in this biomass is conserved and put to use.
In addition to the side stream, there is a significant biomass from the oceans that is not yet exploited, and we focus on the sustainable use of these resources too.We work together across Nofima to ensure total exploitation of all the biomass from the sea as well as from land, and we work to optimize the entire value chain from research to commercialization. We aim at increasing the value from all the precious marine resources we have in Norway and globally.
My academic background is a PhD in chemistry and an MBA in sustainable innovation in global seafood. My experience comes from the academic and commercial sectors and I have expertize with in innovation in bioprocessing, bioprospecting, nano- and micro technology and commercialization and I focus on sustainable exploitation of the resources we have in the sea.
