Helena  Pachon

Research Professor

Faculty, Global Health

My research interest lies in food-based approaches to address malnutrition. I worked for several years at the intersection of agriculture and nutrition with crop biofortification: naturally breeding staple crops to have higher nutrient levels. Currently, I support industrial fortification: adding vitamins and minerals to staple foods as they are processed for human consumption.
