Hovudarbeidsområdet mitt ved NIFES er forsking og dokumentasjon kring fagfeltet matmikrobiologi, der det særleg er fokus på sjukdomsframkallande og kvalitetsreduserande mikroorganismar i fiskefôr og sjømat. Den mikrobiologiske aktiviteten omfattar viktige patogene bakteriar som Listeria monocytogenes og Salmonella .

Eg arbeider også med bruk av legemidlar og restkontroll for fisk i oppdrett, med særleg vekt på sjømattryggleik for dei stoffa som er i bruk.

Samstundes underviser eg og har vegleiingsansvar for studentar innan fagområdet sjømatmikrobiologi ved Universitetet i Bergen, der eg har ei bistilling som professor (BIO 207 Seafood microbiology, http://www.uib.no/course/BIO207).
