My main work constitute maintaining monocultures of microalgae (diatoms) as well as testing their physiological response to different environmental stressors, e.g. temperature, light, CO2 etc. Methods include single cell isolation, taxonomic identification, cell counts, chl. a measurements, growth rate estimations etc.
Part of my work also includes testing mass cultivation of diatom biomass by sequestration of CO2 and NOx emission from factory fumes at Finnfjord AS. The main objective is to upscale to pre-industrial level to produce primarily commercial fish feed while lowering factory fume emissions.
