We are happy to announce the employment of our new product specialist, Andreas Mørck.
Andreas has a background as a marine biologist from University of Southern Denmark (Odense, Denmark) specializing in fish physiology and osmoregulation. Throughout his studies, he focused on the importance of water-transporting proteins, e.g. aquaporins and claudins, during water and salt transport in the intestines and kidneys of fish. The work of his bachelor project resulted in a publication on osmoregulation in the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus L.). And while working on his Master thesis, Andreas produced excellent results on the expression of claudins in the intestines of Japanese ricefish (Oryzias latipes) using state-of-the-art STED-nanoscopy and confocal microscopy.
On a less scientific note, Andreas also holds a MA in Wildlife Filmmaking in collaboration with BBC from University of the West of England as he has been a keen nature photographer for many years. Moreover, Andreas has been a nature communicator at Fjord&Bælt, a teaching-instructor in biology at SDU, Odense, and is a co-author on a Danish Christmas-musical.
Andreas is pleased to have joined the Loligo® Systems team. He mentions that he is “exited and eager to contribute to the continuous growth of Loligo® Systems”. “I had a pleasant welcome and felt as an essential part of the team within the first hour of my first working day!” says Andreas as he continuous being Loligo® Systems new product specialist.
