My research focus on genetics and genomics of protein crops (currently the grain legumes pea and faba bean) and to less extent forage legumes. Together with colleagues within and outside NMBU we are working on all aspects of grain legumes science, in particular grain quality, disease resistance, abiotic stress and agronomy. My main interest is applied research and I am working in close collaboration with the industry such as breeding, food and feed industries.
