Academic interests

For my master degree and PhD I've worked to investigate gene regulation and the function of certain genes. The main methods I use are PCR, real-time PCR and SNP analysis on genetic material from the well known plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The research group has included the closely related species Arabidopsis arenosa and Arabidopsis lyrata in their studies to investigate post-zygotic hybridization barriers in plants. Projects:

  • Main project: The developmental basis of post-zygotic hybridization barriers in Arabidopsis

  • MADS box type I transcription factors
  • The role of RNA directed DNA methylation (RdDM) in regulation of MADS box type I transcription factors

Teaching

Background

Completed Master of Science in molecular biology in 2013 and PhD in 2019 with Paul E. Grini as supervisor and Anne K. Brysting and Katrine Bjerkan as co-supervisors with focus on gene regulation, epigenetics and hybridization barriers in plants.

Master thesis entitled: The role of small RNA in imprinting of MADS box type I transcription factors.

PhD thesis entitled: Endosperm-based post-zygotic hybridizaiton barriers in Arabidopsis.
