Rannsˇkna- og frŠ­asvi­/ßherslur Ý faglegu starfi - Academic/Research Interests

═slenska

Rannsóknir mínar eru á sviði hagnýtrar örverufræði og líftækni auk rannsókna sem tengjast vinnslutækni matvæla. Rannsóknir í hagnýtri örverufræði og líftækni hafa það m.a. að markmiði að finna lausnir á vandamálum og leysa úr læðingi tækifæri sem blasa við á sviði heilbrigðis-, matvæla-, umhverfis- og orkumálamála. Niðurstöðurnar munu nýtast í mörgum mismunandi greinum svo sem matvæla-, fóður og snyrtivöruiðnaði en einnig í hátæknifyrirtækjum, orkuiðnaði og greiningariðnaði og við kennslu.
Sem dæmi um verkefni/svið má nefna: 
    Lífefnaleit
    Örverur við hverastrýtur
    Sérvirk íblöndunarefni
    Prótein marinering
    Markaðsvörur úr þangi og þörungum
    Geymsluþolsspár
    Örverufræði vinnslunnar
    Gæði og öryggi matvæla

Applied microbiology, biotechnology and process developments are the basic theme in my research. The objective of these research areas is to find solutions to problems and to unlock potentials in fields of food, feed, cosmetics, energy and health.
The research projects cover topics in:
   Bio-prospecting
   Microbiology of marine hydrothermal vent system
   Active ingredients for food, feed and cosmetics (antimicrobials and antioxidants)
   Enzyme hydrolysed proteins for marinating food
   New products from large algae
   Microbial growth models and Shelf Life prediction
   Quality and safety of food
