Katariina Raassina

PhD candidate Nord


Katariina received her Master’s in Bioengineering from the University of Tampere, Finland. The focus of her studies was in bacterial and environmental bioengineering. Currently she is a PhD student at Nord University. Her research focus is on developing imaging flow cytometry based phenotyping methods for diatoms, a group of microalgae. Diatoms are interesting due to their silica and lipid production. In addition to phenotyping diatoms, she is looking into evolving a more robust diatom strain for industrial purposes using adaptive laboratory evolution.
