Biography Ulrike Böcker
Present position: PostDoc Degrees: Ph.D. Norwegian University of Life Sciences, 2008 M.Sc. (Diplom) Food Science and Technology from the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany (2003) Research experience & interests: My main field of interest is vibrational spectroscopy in particular FT-IR spectroscopy. FT-IR microspectroscopy in combination with histology and application of FT-IR microspectroscopy to investigate the effect of food manufacturing processes on muscle foods, primarily on muscle proteins have been the focus of my Ph.D work. A further interest of mine is optimization of cultivation and preparation of microbial liquid cultures for improving FT-IR as a high-throughput application for characterization of microorganisms. In
addition, my work with spectroscopic data requires the use multivariate methods, e.g. for integrating spectroscopic data with other types of information by using

Over almost 40 years, Nofima has built up a strong scientific community in the field of spectroscopy - rapid and non-destructive measurements for process optimization. We possess solid expertise within an international format and a modern instrument platform, which is unique in Norway and comparable to the best in Europe. We wish to develop this further by means of establishing the strategic research initiative Spectec.
