I am an emergency nutrition and food security specialist with a background in research and program implementation. I graduated from Friedman in 2018 with an MS in Food and Nutrition Policies and Programs, specializing in multi-sectoral humanitarian response and nutrition program management. I also hold an MSc in International Development and Humanitarian Emergencies from the London School of Economics. While at Tufts, I was a research assistant for the Food Aid Quality Review (FAQR) and the Feinstein International Center, and I completed an internship with Action Against Hunger in northeast Nigeria. I have been working with Action Against Hunger USA for the past two years, first as a Mickey Leland International Hunger Fellow in South Sudan and the US, and currently as research project coordinator for an upcoming study in Ethiopia to improve acute malnutrition treatment. Prior to beginning the fellowship, I worked as a cash and livelihoods assessment officer with the REACH Initiative in Iraq.
