Vladyslava Hostyeva 
Hostyeva is a head engineer and curator for NORCCA. She has a masters degree in marine biology and extensive insight into the morphology and taxonomy of the major phytoplankton groups. Her laboratory skills combined with her knowledge of biology makes her well suited for the day to day operations of the collection.

Petra Thea Mutinova
Mutinova is a research assistant for NORCCA. Mutinova has a masters degree in botany, with specialization in phycology and both freshwater and marine ecology. She apprenticed under Vladyslava Hostyeva and Gert Hansen, the former curator of SCCAP, thus she is well suited for maintaining the diverse algal strains received from SCCAP and the University of Oslo in December 2016, and for supporting smooth running of the whole culture collection.
