I am a nutritionist with research interests focusing on the intersection between agriculture/food systems and food security, health(HIV) and nutrition. I am a core faculty member of the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH). I joined LSHTM in August 2013.
Prior to joining LSHTM, I was a Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), New Delhi.
- Coordinate Nutrition Related Chronic Diseases Module (MSc Nutrition for Global health)
- Monitoring and evaluation of nutrition programmes (in Nutrition Programme Planning Module)
- Agriculture-nutrition linkages (in Fundamentals of Public Health Nutrition)
- DPH Research Degree Coordinator
I am the Principal Investigator of IMMANA (Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions), DFID’s partnership to stimulate the development and application of scientifically sound methods and metrics in agriculture, health and nutrition research. I am the Principal Investigator of a research programme integrating maternal and child nutrition objectives into a participatory low-cost video driven agriculture extension platform. I am also a co-investigator of Leveraging Agriculture for Nutrition in South Asia (LANSA) research consortium.
At the International Food Policy Research Institute (2002-2013), I co-established and led multiple large multidisciplinary and multistakeholder research programmes including the HIV and Nutrition Security theme under a five country initiative, RENEWAL (Regional Network on AIDS, Livelihood and Food Security) in eastern and southern Africa; TANDI (Tackling the Agriculture Nutrition Linkages in India) and POSHAN (Partnerships and Opportunities to Strengthen and Harmonize Actions for Nutrition in India) in India and; the evaluation design and baseline survey of a multisectoral program, Suaahara, in Nepal.
