Associate Professor

Primary fields of research

Associate professor in food chemistry with most activities within dairy chemistry, primarily analysis of milk proteins and derived peptides by use of CE, HPLC and LC-MS(MS).

  • Enzymatic modification and hydrolysis of milk proteins to improve their functional properties, e.g. gelation and foaming
  • Production of bioactive peptides from proteins derived from foods and by-products (e.g. ACE-inhibitory, antioxidant, and antiinflammatory properties)
  • Analysis of milk proteins and identification of peptides (CZE, RP-HPLC, LC-MS and LC-MS/MS)
  • Analysis of low molcular weight components in meat and dairy products (HILIC-MS/MS)
  • Bioactive peptides against life-style diseases

Current research

Presently working with differences between the genetic variants of β-casein, A1 and A2, and participating in the following two research projects:

Characterization of biochemical and nutritional properties of protein hydrolysates of side streams from the slaughter industry (2017-21)

Non-thermal processing of milk: Effects on macromolecules and consequences for functionality, (2017-20).

Teaching

  • Panager of the lab practicals in the BSc course Fødevarekemi (Food Chemistry) 
  • Manager of the Master course Food Enzymes and Applications 
  • Teaching a minor part in the Master course Dairy product Technology 2
  • Coordinator in the PhD course Food Proteins: Significance, Reactions and Modifications (which is offered approximately every other year in collaboration with Wageningen University)
