As a Ph.D. student, I work at the Institute of Crop Science and Resource Conservation (INRES) horticultural sciences. As part of the “Nutrition Intervention Forecasting and Monitoring (NIFAM)” project, I will observe food habits and food environment structures (food sources, types, choices). NIFAM’s objective is to identify and implement cost-effective interventions to improve diets and reduce different forms of malnutrition sustainably. The project focuses on the efficacy of nutrition interventions given the complexity of food systems and nutrition issues. My focus is on the urban areas of Hanoi and rural areas of Kon Tum in Vietnam. Interventions will be collaboratively identified, modeled, implemented, and monitored. I am interested in using holistic modeling methods, transdisciplinary research, and system thinking. My goal is to reduce gender data bias and include heterogeneous perspectives of different groups in my research.

Also, I love cooking, sports, code, and playing the game “Dungeons and Dragons.”
