Personal profile


Associate Professor at GNH Metropol.

I have a strong background in International Development issues with significant teaching and research experience in areas of food security, food markets, food supply chains, food policy, corporate social responsibility and sustainable food systems.  I am member of the Agriculture-Nutrition Community of Practice and my recent interest in research have been: enhancing food security for vulnerable groups through encouraging alternative livelihood practices and building their adaptive capacity to climate change; forging partnerships across different stakeholders to ensure efficiency in food supply chains; supporting agribusiness value chains; forging gender equality and environmental practices. I am service minded, possess a can do attitude and bring high energy and self-motivation to my role. With my background from Africa, I have the ability to communicate effectively with diverse personalities, groups, across organization and geographical borders. I have a structured approach with attention to quality and thrive well in a high paced environment with shifting demands. I seek continues improvement and enjoy working in a multi-cultural environment.
