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 role is Co-Director of the Agriculture, Nutrition and Health (ANH) Academy, a global 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.
Aside from this, I have a research interest in the political economy of food systems and the cross-cutting impacts of plastics.
