As Head of Research I work on project development and financing in the Groups Research Field of coantimants and biohazards in Seafood.
When it comes to my own Research it is mainly linked to coantaminants in Seafood as well. This is now including both toxic metlas (cadmium and Mercury) but also POPs.
I do also have an interest in and have worked on levles and effects of essentioal trace elements such as selnium, iodine, zinc, iron and more both in human nutrition and also in fish nutrition which was the theme of my PhD-thesis.
