Maria Wrabel

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 a nutrition consultant. Prior to beginning the fellowship, I worked as a cash and livelihoods assessment officer with the REACH Initiative in Iraq.
