    Research interests

    I have wide-ranging interests within the fields of organic chemistry and chemical biology, amongst other things in stable radicals (molecules containing unpaired electrons). Another focus is the development of new antibiotics and methods to counteract antibacterial resistance. I am also interested in studies and chemical modification of transmembrane proteins, in particular proteins which are relevant to antibacterial resistance. I'm a member of the Centre for New Antibacterial Strategies (CANS) at UiT.
