Our ultimate aim is to develop tools to control microbial nitrogen transformations, thus minimizing the nitrogen footrints and climate forcing of food production  

To achieve this, we need fundamental research on the ecophysiology and regulatory biology of microbial nitrogen-transformation.    

Our applied research includes collaborative projects with agriculture-,  fertilizer- , mining-, and wastewater-industries


We have deveolped robotized incubation system for labscale investigations of aerobic and anaerobic respiratory metabolism, and a field robot for measuring gas fluxes in field experimets.

Watch a brief presentation of our research
