I am a researcher in the Department of production Biology at Nofima, with the main focus on macroalgae production in Northern Norway. My basic education is molecular biology, ecology, biochemistry, fish nutrition and sustainable aquaculture. I was involved in projects working with integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA), environmental interaction, biochemistry of Atlantic salmon, exploitation of new protein and lipid source for fish feed, using microalgae for production of cosmetics and food supplements. The work was involved in mass balance model for estimating nutrient wastes from salmon, cultivation of macroalgae, blue mussel and scallops with salmon, using stable isotope to trace aquaculture waste and using molecular rRNA-based strategies to determine intestinal microbiota in rainbow trout and European seabass.
