Biography Karsten Heia

I work as a researcher in the Department Seafood Industry. More specific, I am involved in industry related projects were contact with the fish produces and equipment suppliers are of vital importance. I have a PhD degree in physics from 1996 at the University of Tromsø, and since then I have been employed at Fiskeriforskning an now at Nofima . I work with developing rapid methodologies for determining the quality of seafood and seafood products. This includes both development of measurements techniques, instrumentation and software development. Mainly I have worked with X-ray imaging, VIS/NIR spectroscopy and imaging spectroscopy applied for detection of quality defects and determining quality parameters. Lately, there has been a lot on focus on blood and blood related topics.

Karsten Heia has 83 publications at Nofima:
