Personal profile

Research interests

I work mainly with food industry co-streams (berry, vegetable, meat, fish) with the aim to enhance their utilization in food or feed products. The tools to modify and upgrade the raw material co-streams are e.g. bioprocessing with enzymes and microbes and thermo-mechanical processing like extrusion. Currently my special interest is in fish products, like in the development of "pulled fish" from Baltic herring.

I enjoy applying scientific knowledge in practise and working in close collaboration with industry.
