Personal profile


The Division for Food Technology consists of an administrative unit and disciplinary research groups. As head of the Division, I do lead and administrate our activities in close collaboration with research group leaders. Further, I lead the innovation activities across the department.

My area of research, teaching and advisory services range from soil to table and include food technology, biorefinery, bioeconomy, development and innovation in high value commodity chains in developing countries and organic farming.

I have a particular interest in innovation and collaboration with business. The division has a large network and collaboration with companies with the food sector. As head of division, I support this collaboration in agreement with the university and the departments four focus areas: research, education, research based policy advise, and innovation in relation to companies.
