Section: Økotoksikologi og risikovurdering
Merete Grung has been employed at NIVA since 2001. She worked both in the chemical department and in the section for ecotoxicology and risk assessment before starting in the section for contaminants in freshwater environments in 2010. She has a PhD in bioorganic chemistry from 1993 (Norwegian Technical University). Her research interests span from occurrence and effects of organic contaminants to using advanced chemical analyses to identify emerging contaminants. She has experience from several projects that involve environmental risk assessment. She is a member of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety since 2010. Grung holds a professor II position in toxicology with Institute for biosciences (University of Oslo).
