Food security and nutrition
I continue to work as a Senior Research Analyst at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). My research at IFPRI has primarily focused on examining the impact of agricultural programs on nutrition as well as the politics of food security and nutrition policy, and the gendered dynamics of access to these resources.
More specifically, my work there has focused on: i) analysis of agricultural data in sub-Saharan Africa on gendered land ownership, ii) evaluating agriculture-nutrition programs in West Africa and their impacts on intra-household dynamics, food security and nutrition outcomes, and iii) agriculture and nutrition policy processes in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. I co-lead and have (co)coordinated several rounds of mixed methods studies in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia (see my CV for more information on these “Stories of Change” or “Stories of Challenge” studies).
My Google Scholar profile that reflects much of this work is here.
