I have received my PhD from Lund University in 2003, where I described the first xylan-specific CBM4 from a GH10 thermostable xylanase [1]. I moved to the other side of the Øresund canal to start a post-doc at the Carlsberg Research Center in the laboratory of Professor Birte Svensson in Copenhagen, working on barley α-amylases and other GH13 enzymes. Thereafter, I moved to the Technical University of Denmark, where I am a Professor MSO at the the Department of Biotechnology and Bioengineering, since 2018. Since 2008, my research has been focused on understanding the protein machinery, especially oligosaccharide transporters, conferring glycan utilisation by members of the human gut microbiota including lactobacilli [2], bifidobacteria [3],[4], [5] and clostridia [6], [7].
