My name is Amelia (Mia) Darrouzet-Nardi. I am a doctoral candidate and U.S. Borlaug Fellow in Global Food Security at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University. Since January 2013 I’ve been working on my dissertation in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. My advisor is William A. Masters, Professor and Chair of the Food and Nutrition Policy Department at the Friedman School.
Prior to enrolling in the PhD program at Tufts University, I worked at the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) at Iowa State University. I received an M.S. in Agricultural Economics from Iowa State University, and a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University.
I’m originally from Framingham, Massachusetts. Here is my CV, updated August 2014. I live in Kinshasa, DRC with my husband Christopher (an economist at USAID), and our two daughters Lythia and Lila. We like to walk along the Congo River, play Magic: The Gathering, eat lots of Tex-Mex, and watch The Simpsons.
