I obtained my master’s degree (M.Sc.) in nanoscience from Aarhus University, Denmark, in 2011. In 2014, I completed the work for my doctoral degree (Ph.D.) at Oslo University, Norway, and Aarhus University, Denmark, as part of a dual degree agreement. During my doctoral studies, my main work place was at the Norwegian Center for Molecular Medicine (NCMM) at Oslo University. The work was supervised by Dr. Jens Preben Morth heading the membrane transport group at the NCMM. My current position is post-doctoral researcher at the NCMM. My research interests are the structure-function relationship of proteins. In my investigations, I use a multitude of biophysical techniques of characterization in order to provide detailed information of the atomic structure and dynamics of target molecules. I primarily use X-ray crystallography as the main method of acquiring structural information. I combine this with information extracted from other methods such as isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC), circular dichroism (CD), differential scanning fluorimetry (DSF) and kinetic studies if applicable. I enjoy study design and innovation in order to explore new experimental routes to acquire molecular information.
