Academic interests

I am a microbiologist working on the project "Applied DNA metabarcoding: Towards a streamlined approach for DNA based profiling of indoor mycobiomes (IndoorMyco)". The aims of the project are to improve the knowledge about the indoor mycobiome by implementing high throughput sequencing analyses and investigate the potential for commercial applications. During my PhD, I hope to find out more about the indoor microbiome and how it impacts human health.


I have a Bachelor of Science in biology (2013), with focus on physiology, cell - and molecular biology and a Master of Science in microbiology (2015), with focus on pathogenic microorganisms, gut microbiota, antibiotic resistance and molecular microbiology - both from the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). During my Master Project, I investigated the association of necrotizing enterocolitis with integrons and antibiotic resistance genes in the gut microbiota of preterm infants. This was mainly done by combining quantitative PCR with different DNA sequencing approaches (Sanger sequencing, Illumina 16S rRNA metagenome sequencing and Illumina shotgun metagenome sequencing). From 2016, I have been working as a PhD student at the University of Oslo (UiO) at the Department of Biosciences, mainly focusing on high throughput sequencing of the indoor microbiome.
