Academic interests

I am a new PhD student at CEES started around the end of September 2014. I hold a Masters degree in Bioinformatics and my primary interest is in the field of genomics.  

My research work at CEES, under the supervision of Asbjørn Vøllestad and Kjetill Jakobsen, will involve analysis of sequence data from Grayling. Being a part of an interdisciplinary environment like CELS I look forward to working with statisticians and informaticians to solve some important biological questions related to teleost fishes.
