How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

My main research interest is osmoregulation and acid-base regulation in fish. My professional background is in aquaculture biology and fish physiology where I have extensive knowledge within smolt development and production protocols for salmonids. My PhD thesis focuses on describing and mapping ion transporters in the kidney of Atlantic salmon to better understand the osmoregulatory role of the kidney in this species, where we have limited knowledge.

Sulfate ( SO 4 2 - ) regulation is challenging for euryhaline species as they deal with large fluctuations of SO 4 2 - during migratory transitions between freshwater (FW) and seawater (SW), while maintaining a stable plasma SO 4 2 - concentration. Here, we investigated the regulation and potential role of sulfate transporters in Atlantic salmon du...
Euryhaline teleosts exhibit major changes in renal function as they move between freshwater (FW) and seawater (SW) environments, thus tolerating large fluctuations in salinity. In FW, the kidney excretes large volumes of water through high glomerular filtration rates (GFR) and low tubular reabsorption rates, while actively reabsorbing most ions at...
There is a need to find better biomarkers to predict stress in fish. The project is focusing on finding such biomarkers in different production settings in the Norwegian salmon farming industry. The main goal is to predict the overall capabilities fish have to both tolerate and respond to different stressful aquaculture operations during the production cycle. Furthermore, link this to the overall long-term performance, health and growth of the fish.
