Hans Christopher Bernstein

Professor in Microalgae and Microbiome Engineering

Job description

Dr. Bernstein is a Professor in UiT's Arctic Centre for Sustainable Energy (ARC). He specializes in genome-enabled bioengineering with microbes and microbial communities. His research is at the intersection of biotechnology and microbial ecology as applied to the fields of marine microbiomes, synthetic biology, and algal biotechnology for capture and utilization.
