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
