Biography Gesine Schmidt
I started my work in Nofima as a postdoc researcher in 2011 and was employed as research scientist in 2014. My research areas include Metabolomics and Lipidomics. I am especially interested in plant-produced, health-related compounds in fruits, berries and vegetables, their change through cultivation, post-harvest treatment, processing and storage and their interrelation with taste. My special interests also include instrumental and statistical methods in analytical chemistry, with emphasis on extraction methods, liquid- and gas chromatography and mass spectrometry. I hold a diploma degree (correspondent MSc) in marine environmental sciences from the University of Oldenburg, Germany (2005) and a doctoral degree in natural sciences with specSpecialization in analytical chemistry at the Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research and Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany (2010).

The consumption of vegetables has increased over the last years, but the sales of cruciferous vegetables (Brassica, cabbages) has been stagnant. Increased awareness of taste can increase sale of cabbage.
