Biography Marthe Jordbrekk Blikra

I am a PhD Fellow at Nofima in Stavanger and DTU (Technical University of Denmark). In the PhD project I characterize the processes occurring during cooking of cod in a convection oven, and model these using the software COMSOL Multiphysics. Specific areas of investigation are transport of heat and mass (evaporation and cook loss), denaturation of proteins, changes in texture/rheological properties, heat-induced shrinkage, and characterization of the cook loss.

In addition to cod I am very interested in seaweeds, particularly sugar kelp and winged kelp, and studied the quality changes during blanching of these species in my master thesis project. As a result, I am now involved in several other projects focused on utilizing seaweeds in foods, and plan to continue working with this topic.
