Sanna Matsson has a PhD in Marine Biology from the department of Arctic and Marine Biology, UiT The Arctic University of Norway (2021). The thesis ‘Fouling of macro epibionts on cultivated Saccharina latissima (Phaeophyceae) – In situ temporal and spatial variation’ deals with fouling organisms on cultivated sugar kelp and maps the extent, art compostion and timing of settlement along the Norwegian coast.
Sanna has worked with different life phases of cultivated kelp, and started with marine macroalgae during her master’s degree in Marine biology and Aquaculture from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), in 2013, where she looked at optimizing gametophyte cultures. Through her work, she has disseminated knowledge through international publishing, teaching at univerity level and for primary schools, and participation in conferences.
Sanna has worked as a researcher at Møreforsking since January 2022 and belongs to the ocean and health group. She has research interests in cultivation of varius species, co-cultivation, and low trophic species.
