I am educated as a pharmacist at the University of Copenhagen and did my Ph.D. on new metabolites from unexplored fungi. This was a joint project between the University of Copenhagen, DTU and the University of Canterbury, New Zealand.
I have 10 years of working experience with LC/MS on small molecules (<600 Da), and 1 year Post Doc experience from the University of Basel working with LC/MS analysis of proteins. I am currently working as a research scientist at the Forensic Chemistry Section at the University of Copenhagen, where I am the expert on UPLC-(Q)TOF-MS and UHPLC-Orbitrap-MS analysis.
