  • Liaison Scientist, Global Collaboration for Resilient Food Systems (CRFS) East and Southern Africa Community of Practice "from [2018] to [2024]" Funded by McKnight Foundation. The programme aims to cultivate resilient food systems globally by bridging farmer-centred agroecological research, action and influence. The Liaison Scientist role supports CRFS researchers in Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda in co-creating agroecological knowledge that addresses immediate and proximate needs of farmers and other food systems actors, while filling evidence gaps, and creating opportunities for linkages to wider local food systems transformation efforts.

  • ICTs for Understanding Women's time use, dietary and hygiene practices "from [2021] to [2024]". An Innovative Methods and Metrics for Agriculture and Nutrition Actions (IMMANA) research grant funded by FCDO and BMGF, with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Africa Innovations Institute, and Ichuli Institute, Uganda. The study aims to contribute to evidence gaps on the application of digital technologies to evaluate nutrition and health outcomes in LMICs. It is assessing two ICT tools- Life-logging Cameras with image-assisted recall, and Interactive Voice Response Diaries via mobile phones against direct observations with women in a remote, post-conflict context of northern Uganda.
