Post Doctoral Researchers
Post Doctoral Researcher
Postdoctoral researcher in bioprocess engineering. Anaerobic fermentation of single carbon substrate for the production biochemicals: Experimental design and mathematical modelling.
Post Doctoral Researcher
I am working on projects studying endothelial cells, especially their response to inflammatory and adrenergic stimuli, and mesenchymal stem cells, focusing on their differentiation to osteocytes and adipocytes. I collaborate between University of Iceland, University of Reykjavík and the University of Copenhagen.
I am working towards implementing new mass spectrometry based chemical analysis methods in various biochemistry based research projects.
Metabolic reconstruction of Rhodothermus marinus
Effect of physical, chemical mutagenesis and adaptive evolution on the marine diatom Phaeodactylum tricornutum for enhanced carotenoid accumulation.
I work on bioengineering for making value from bioresources, which involves strain improvement and bioprocess engineering.
My project is based on using anaerobic thermophilic bacteria producing chemicals like acetic acid, ethanol, butanol or 2,3-butanediol by using scrubbed geothermal gas from the powerplant on Hellisheiði.
I am working on characterizing differences in the central carbon metabolism that happen during epithelial-to-mesenchymal transiton using western blotting, RT-qPCR, metabolomics and lipidomics.
My project involves mapping the proteomic changes that occure during EMT within the cell model D492.

I am working on making and updating constraint-based metabolic and signaling models describing EMT-related metabolic and signaling changes in breast epithelial cells. Additionally, I will validate the predictions made by these in silico models using in vitro methods.
My project involves understanding the metabolism of platelet storage lesion using a combination of isotopic labelling mass spectrometry and proteomics methods.
