Status: On maternity leave until March 2025


  • 2018: MSc Analytical chemistry, University of Oslo, Norway
  • 2016: BSc Engineering (Biotechnology and chemistry), Oslo Metropolitan University, Norway


Research Summary

Elise's thesis was to evaluate and complete a global metabolomics method using liquid chromatography–high resolution (Q Exactive Orbitrap) mass spectrometry of dried blood spots. The group uses the method today as a supplement to diagnostics, and in several different research projects. She is currently working on method developement, among other themes.
