Ekstern forskerprofil



Sunniva has a master's degree in Chemistry and Biotechnology from NMBU in Ås, and wrote a master's thesis on lactic acid bacteria and bacteria-inhibiting substances (antimicrobial peptides). After her studies, she worked for almost six years within the kelp industry in the western region of Norway before she started working at NIVA. She has a lot of experience with the entire value chain of kelp cultivation (sugarkelp, winged kelp and oarweed), and especially the first steps with cultures and seedling production, but also deployment to sea, maintenance, harvesting and processing. This also involves production planning and work with various research projects to develop and improve the production.

In addition to microalgae, Sunniva also works with many of the activities in NIVA related to ocean wind.
