Researcher and Deputy Head of the Plant Breeding Department

Presentation

My main research interest is to design plants to produce tailor made compounds with benefits for our health and/or our environment, by using biotechnology. My focus lies on potato starch, but oil, sugar and protein are also of interest.

Background

PhD in Biochemistry, 2004, Lund University

12 years working experience from plant biotech industry and 2 years working experience from packaging industry

SLU-employee since September 2010
