Research Area
I am an analytical chemist at Steno Metabolomics Laboratory, working closely with Steno Systems Medicine. I analyse biological samples using high throughput mass spectrometry methods. I specialize in both gas and liquid chromatography in the field of targeted and untargeted metabolomics.  

Ongoing Projects

Metabolomics method development and implementation
Main project: EU FP7 METSY 

2009 Doctor of Biological and Biotechnical Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia  

2004 Master of Chemical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
