Ambassador’s Report

I want to promote GHI in every way possible for me to help spreading its goals and contribute to its success. This I do in my own language in Norway but also in English everywhere in the world at congresses and meetings, through writing articles in journals and magazines and chapters in books to make the goals of our organisation known by as many people as possible all over the world.
This is also the reason why I have joined the editorial board as one of the series editors of the GHI book series going to be published every year in the time to come, covering the whole world.
Personally, as a microbiologist, my interest is especially food safety, biofilm formation and the risk of worsening the problem of antibiotic resistance of pathogenic bacteria as a result of incorrect use of biocides in the food industry.
