Member Spotlight: Samaneh Fard

Samaneh Fard
Dr. Samaneh Fard is a registered nutritionist advocating nutrition and actively promoting a healthy lifestyle. A R&D technologist for Nu-Mega Ingredients, her research interest involves the improvement of nutritional status in women, infants and the elderly with the aim of introducing essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA).

A typical day for me includes… 

A great many things: engaging in clinical investigation, research and development, project management, writing and proofreading reports, carrying out literature searches, data analysis, organizing seminars and workshops, developing evidence-based technical materials and content to support marketing team members, attending meetings, talking to my line colleagues daily about our work …the list goes on.

My favorite part of my job is…

I rather enjoy the research aspect and enjoy the idea of science being central to discovering new concepts/products. Nu-Mega Ingredients is an exciting organization to be involved with as the mission of the company is in line with my area of interest and that is optimizing nutritional status in adults, elderly and infants with the aim of introducing essential nutrients for overall health.

Away from work, I like to… 

Spend time with family and my friends. Every weekend I try to organize one day activity with them from a picnic to hiking to shopping. I am Iranian born and bred and really enjoying cooking and having parties.

If I could meet anyone, it would be… 

Professor Jørn Dyerberg, one of the pioneers behind the discovery of the health effects of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids in our foods.

When listening to the radio I listen to…

Podcasts. Every day I like to get outside and go for a walk and listen to Persian Podcasts. I love Masty & Rasty, Navcast, and Paragraph … I feel like I learn something new with each episode.

Thanks for sharing your valuable research and your life outside of work with us, Samaneh!
