I joined Nofima in 2009 as a postdoc and now I am a researcher working on macrolagae production in Northern Norway.
We are collaborating with Norwegian kelp industries to explore the potential for Saccharina latissima cultivation in the north with extended growth season and less biofouling.
We are also working with cultivation of Palmaria palmata and Ulva. spp.
My basic education is marine biology. I took my master in Ocean University of China studying the influence of aquaculture on the diversity of bacteria in sediment in Yangtze river.
In 2008, I came to NTNU for my PhD study on Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA).
We co-cultured blue mussels, scallops, and seaweed in a commercial salmon farm to mitigate the potential negative environmental impact from salmon aquaculture. Then I worked as a researcher at NTNU on exploiting microalgae as raw materials for fish feed.
