BSc in Molecular biology, MSc in Protein Science with focus on Protein Engineering. Majority of research experience comes from running a biotech start-up working with protein production and specializing on cell-free systems. Also shortly dabbled in stem cell research.
PhD project 14: Production of diols
Biomass is an abundant carbon feedstock that will make the basis for the world’s future bio-based production of chemicals and materials. In this project we will create novel yeast cell factories for converting biomass hydrolyzates into diols. Diols are used for making polymers, such as polyurethanes and polyesters. The project is in collaboration with Norwegian biorefinery Borregaard.
