About this person

Research field:

  • Marine biotechnology
  • Bioprospekting
  • Enzyme discovery
  • Enzyme development
  • Immobilization
  • Protein production
  • Molecular biology

Competence: We offer biotechnological solutions for the bio-based marine industry. Our focus is to develop enzymes designed for the industry. We are working on enzyme discovery, but also on optimization of existing enzymes.

Methods: Bioprospecting. Functional screening of enzyme activity. State-of-the-art recombinant cloning. Heterologous expression of proteins in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems. Enzyme production. Enzyme activity. Development of enzyme assays. Protein purification. Immunoblotting. Lab and project management.
