BA fellow 2019-2020

Diana Namanyanja, from Uganda, is an entomologist by profession. She is posted to icipe in Nairobi, Kenya, undertaking her fellowship research on product development from edible grasshopper (Ruspolia differens). She hopes to gain new knowledge and skills on how to be innovative with research products, specifically on insect science for food and feed. “Coming from a country where entomophagy is real, especially with the grasshopper, new knowledge on their utilization for commercial will be of great gains,” she says.
