Henok Kurabachew Mulat, associate professor of plant pathology and director of the School of Nutrition, Food Science, and Technology at Hawassa University, promotes multidisciplinary academic and research programs to improve nutrition in Ethiopia. He is working with UW-Madison on an orange-fleshed sweet potato nutrition and health project in collaboration with the International Potato Center. He is also interested in the impacts of climate change on agricultural productivity and nutrition in his country.

Mulat’s visit to Madison is funded by a Global Health Institute Visiting Scholars grant. His visit provides an opportunity to expand collaborations between the universities and create new academic and community partnerships to improve nutrition and health of small-holder farmers and rural communities in Ethiopia. He will also receive training on how to use nutritional analysis equipment for Vitamin A and other micronutrients to help build local capacity at Hawassa University.
