Co-Director - Agriculture, Nutrition & Health Academy
I work on the IMMANA (Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions) progamme which aims to improve nutrition and health by strengthening tools, capacity and evidence in agriculture and food systems research.
My main responsibility is as Co-Director of the Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy, a gloabl network of researchers, practitioners and policymakers working at the intersections of agriculture-food systems for improved nutrition and health.
The ANH Academy has four key goals.
- Share innovative research in agriculture and food systems for improved nutrition and health;
- Stimulate the development and harmonisation of new research;
- Help strengthen the capacity of the research community to undertake inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary research;
- Facilitate the uptake of robust evidence in policies and programming in agriculture and food systems for improved nutrition and health.
My own research focuses on the impacts of plastics used across food systems.
