I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Food and Health.
Whilst predominantly an analytical chemist within the field of carbohydrates, I also have many years of experience in microbiology and biochemistry.
At Nofima I will work on the AnimalFat+ project where John-Erik Haugen is the project manager.
I will be working on the development of new healthier meat products with less saturated fat and the synthesis of new sustainable surfactants based on side streams from the meat (animal fat) and grain industry (dextrin and fibre).
After obtaining my PhD in 2011 from the University of Huddersfield I spent time in industry working in R&D for Unilever before moving back to academia with post doc positions at the University of Manchester and most recently NMBU.
