Scientific Program Associate

Nikki Dutta joined the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research in August 2019 as a Scientific Program Associate. She is responsible for overseeing the grant application review process for various programs within FFAR’s Advanced Animal Systems and Next Generation Crops Challenge Areas; organizing convening meetings to identify research gaps and inform future programs and funding opportunities; and supporting two of FFAR’s public-private partnerships—International Consortium for Antimicrobial Stewardship in Agriculture (ICASA) and Crops of the Future (COTF)—to advance innovative research in food and agriculture. Nikki is very excited to be working within the food and agriculture space and is passionate about the connection between anthropology and sustainability management.

Outside of the office, Nikki enjoys traveling, cooking, and biking. She will also almost always pet your dog, if permitted.
