About Peter

Peter Olsson has a MSc in Chemical engineering and a PhD degree in Applied Biochemistry. As a PhD student Peter worked with salt tolerance and water tolerance a major issue in many agricultural areas of the word. Irrigation is in many area, by salinize land and lowering ground water level highly affecting the environment. In some areas arable land have become so saline that it is no longer can be used for agricultural production. Peters work as a PhD student as well as a researcher after graduation was a mix of some laboratory molecular biology and biochemical work and to a high degree data analysis of genomic data.
