Dr Tolu Emma Eyinla holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Human Nutrition from the University of Ibadan and currently teaches the science and applications of Human Nutrition. His research is focused on the nutritional assessment of individuals in order to make inferences at community and population levels. His educational background covers the broad areas of community and public health nutrition and over my post-PhD years has developed strong expertise in the areas of food composition and food consumption surveys. His specific areas of research have sought to answer questions of how food intake relates to health outcomes and implications for nutritional epidemiology and diet-related non-communicable diseases with focus on the vulnerable groups including infants and young children, older people, pregnant women, athletes, adolescents. He have been involved in community-based research activities in the areas of nutrition, agriculture and public health, through which he acquired skills in planning, implementation and evaluation of nutrition and health programmes. His experience in the field of Nutrition also includes the management of nutrition survey data for making recommendations for policy. He has consulted for several organizations, including the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan, the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Nigeria, Nigeria Home Grown School Feeding Programme and Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Nigeria. He joined the Department of Human Nutrition and Dietetics as a Lecturer II in 2019. Tolu Emma is a member of the Nutrition Society of Nigeria.
