I have my master’s degree in organic chemistry from NTNU where I worked on carbohydrate chemistry for my master’s thesis. Currently, I am a PhD student in the LIPCHEM research group, where I have worked since 2020. The project I work on is centered on epoxy fatty acids. We aim to make mimics of endogenous epoxy fatty acids, which could be potential drugs or biochemical tools to advance our understanding of inflammatory disease. Previous studies have indicated that epoxy fatty acids could be useful in pain management, as well as playing a key role in some neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease.
Fields of interest: drug development, organic synthesis, pharmacodynamics, biochemistry.
