Telephone: 48341656
Department: Feed and nutrition

Anne-Catrin has a degree in nutrition science and since starting her PhD in 2013 working on fish nutrition. Her research work is largely interdisciplinary and combines the fields of fish nutrition, growth and physiology with epigenetic, metabolic and transcriptomic studies.

Her main research interest is devoted to the dynamics of intermediary metabolism, epigenetic gene regulation mechanisms and programming potential of health and growth of broodstock and farmed fish in one generation, and in offspring over generations.
