Profile

My field of work is aerobic anoxygenic phototrophs, which is a group of bacteria capable of using light as a secondary source of energy. The ambition is to create a larger understanding of the genetics and evolution of aerobic anoxygenic phototrophs, and strengthen our knowledge towards becoming able to gain from the green energy that these bacteria harvest from sunlight. I am currently creating a strain collection of phototrophic bacteria from different environments including the Arctic. This collection is a valuable tool for further investigations, and I will amongst others apply genome sequencing to obtain a better understanding of the diversity, evolutionary development and properties of this group of bacteria.
