Biography Tone Mari Rode
I work as a researcher at Nofima, Dept. of Processing Technology in Stavanger. I started as a PhD student working in the field of microbiology and gene technology at Nofima (former Matforsk), Ås in 2004. Then I continued as a post doc. the same place. My research field was bacterial stress responses – how bacteria get affected when they are exposed to different stress factors. From 2010 I have been working as a research scientist at Nofima Norconserv, Stavanger. Mainly I work with food processing (e.g. high pressure processing), shelf life and food quality. Education: PhD in microbiology/gene technology, Norwegian University of Life Sciences; ‘Stress responses of food related Staphylococcus aureus’. M.Sc in Biotechnology, University of Tromsø; ‘Characterisation of cDNA sequences ofantimicrobial peptides in spider crab (Hyas araneus) and red king crab (Paralithodes camtschatica). B.Sc of Medical Laboratory Science, Ålesund University College.
Tone Mari Rode has 32 publications at Nofima:
1. January 2013 – 31. December 2016
In this project, the researchers will document how various process technologies kills pathogenic spores, and develop new safe food products with long shelf life.
