Headshot

Amialya (Mia) Durairaj, MS '15, is a Nutrition and Health Writing Consultant at Little Octopus

I chose Mason's Nutrition and Food Studies program because it was more interdisciplinary than most traditional dietetics programs. I learned how to critically evaluate scientific literature, which is crucial to my current work. In addition, my professors taught me how to frame a research question and answer it using rigorous methodology. Throughout the program, I honed my public speaking, writing and quantitative analysis skill sets which have all been very important to my current consulting practice. Every day I apply my degree by researching, writing, and facilitating knowledge exchange around topics I studied in many of my classes.
