My name is Elias Militao, I’m a PhD student in Health Sciences at Mid Sweden University, Department of Health Sciences, Sweden. My research is about food insecurity and how food insecurity is associated with negative health outcomes in the context of Mozambique. I hold an MSc. in Biotechnology since 2013 from Eduardo Mondlane University, and I’m a Lecturer in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Eduardo Mondlane University, Department of Biological Sciences, Mozambique. My research interests include: food security and nutrition, food insecurity (including associated causes) and health inequalities, and also the effects of meditation and yoga practices on one’s wellbeing and spiritual growth.
