In my current role as Head of IT/Mobile Platforms I am responsible for the expansion and day-to-day running of CABI’s Overseas Development Centre in India. I work with colleagues across CABI’s regional centers and UK Head Office, local partners and stakeholders, and manage the resources required to deliver a number of CABI’s key digital and mobile projects and services.
I have extensive international experience managing software design and development in a global and distributed software development model.
One in three people in the developing world suffer from hidden hunger, or micronutrient deficiency, due to a lack of information on proper nutrition. This is a major cause of illness, poor growth, reduced productivity and impaired cognitive development. To help combat the problem, CABI and its partners in the DFID mNutrition initiative are developing content for a mobile phone-based messaging service aimed at increasing knowledge of nutrition and health within communities in 14 countries.
