Career: 

Nutritionist doing her PhD research at Wageningen Univeristy& Research within N2Africa. As a nutritionist, she entered a new world of crops and farming. Talking about the uptake of nitrogen already resulted in some confusion, as it was referred to the uptake by the plant and not by the body. But it is exactly these two worlds we need to combine to understand N2Africa’s impact on nutrition. She did her MSc in human nutrition and health, focussing on malnutrition in developing countries, within the TELFUN program in India.
