After Nearly a Year Away, Vicky is Back – And Ready to Write Her Dissertation!

After Nearly a Year Away, Vicky is Back – And Ready to Write Her Dissertation!

For 10 productive months, Vicky was in Singida, Tanzania doing work that will ultimately inform her PhD dissertation. As part of the Singida Nutrition and Agro-ecology Project (SNAP), Vicky helped implement two surveys and completed much of the qualitative data collection. She will use data collected from her time abroad to write about the effects of SNAP on the local community, more specifically examining its impact on gender equity and child nutrition. This important work was partially funded by the Borlaug Fellowship for Global Food Security. Welcome back, Vicky!
