I am based in Sunndalsøra and in the research group «Production biology».

My interests in research are welfare, welfare indicators and stress, both in salmon and cleaner fish. I also work with organic aquaculture and coordinated the EU project OrAqua.

Regarding welfare, most work is about defining good welfare indicators in commercial production and how to measure stress in suboptimal production situations. I am interested in handling procedures such as crowding and pumping, and optimizing husbandry practices to maintain welfare and ensuring research quality.

I have coordinated large Norwegian and international projects, and since 1st October 2017 I have coordinated CtrlAQUA (center for research based innovation)
