Dikoda is a growing network of professionals experienced in public health and applied research. We are driven by the idea that small, good ideas can lead to big change… if applied at the right time in the right place. As a small organisation, we are agile, ready to tackle new problems and ready to bring new ways of thinking to difficult challenges.

Dr Sophie Goudet is the Managing Director of Dikoda Ltd. Sophie is a researcher/technical advisor in nutrition and a visiting fellow in Global Urban Nutrition at Loughborough University, UK. She has over twenty years’ experience working for international agencies in nutrition and health of low-and middle-income countries in Asia and Africa and 12 years of management experience at senior management roles. Sophie holds a PHD (UK), MBA (USA), MSC (France) and has published multiple academic papers.

Dikoda employs high-level researchers and global experts to provide technical and research assistance.

Specifically, the current team members have strong experience and technical expertise in the following areas:

  • Development of public nutrition policies
  • Technical capacity building, especially related to urban interventions with a focus on maternal and child nutrition and food systems interventions.
  •  Design and implementation of large-scale nutrition research
  • Public health surveillance and research, globally and in the selected countries
  • Technical assistance for urban nutrition research and programme implementation with extensive experience in multi-stakeholder and multi countries engagement
  •  Tools and guidance development, capacity building and mentoring of professional staff
  • Analytical, writing, communication and facilitation skills

Most of our team are women and we give preferred opportunities to women junior researchers.

We are currently working with research teams and partners in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines and Pakistan.
