About me


I have a M.Sc. degree in Aquaculture, with specialization in fish nutrition from University of Bergen. The thesis was done in cooperation with NIFES. I have a Ph.D. degree in muscle structure and quality in salmon and cod, also from University of Bergen. Before coming to Nord University I worked for 8 years as a scientist at Institute of Marine Research, Matre. Here I did my PhD work, but I was also involved in research on quality of smoked salmon (EU-project), and on production in closed cage technology.

After coming to Nord University in 2003 I have been involved in small and large projects focusing on how production methods affect fillet quality and growth in fish, such as feeding regimes, light regimes, water velocity in closed cage and stress.

My teaching includes topics at Bachelor and Master level within seafood quality both on wild and aquaculture species at Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture. I am study program responsible for master in biosciences (earlier biology and aquaculture). I am also a lecturer, as well as study programme responsible for the life long learning programme Quality management in seafood production . I am pro dean for education at the faculty in the period from August 2016 until December 2020.
