Daniel Amund Appointed Food Science Adviser To UK Ministers by Koolking(m): 11:14am On Jun 21, 2012
A Nigerian Doctoral Student, DANIEL AMUND has been appointed as an honorary adviser to the UK government on Food Science. This come as goodnews at a time when Nigeria's image is being smeared with Corruptions, bombings, kidnapping and all manner of religious and political vices.

This is goodnews folks. Hope is not lost for Nigerians. Despite the odd, we will still leverage on the true Nigerian spirit.


A London Met PhD student is bound for the halls of Westminster after securing a three-month post to advise the government on food science matters.

Daniel Amund, who studies at the Faculty of Life Sciences, was hand-picked by the Institute of Food Science and Technology in conjunction with the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology for a research fellowship.

The fellowship is offered to just one PhD student, nationally, each year.

Daniel said he is thrilled to have won the fellowship after five years study at London Met and expects it to reveal more career paths in the food science industry.

“This definitely feels great. The most exciting thing is that it allows me to see what else is out there and to test where this can take my career within the field of science,” he said.

“The interview went really well. My application focussed on topics other than my PhD and I think maybe they liked the fact I knew about areas that weren’t related to my research.”

At the beginning of his placement the 29-year-old will be given a research topic and be asked to write a briefing paper for ministers and public policy makers by October.

Daniel completed his undergraduate degree in microbiology at the University of Lagos in Nigeria before transferring to London Met to do a Masters in food science in 2007, and embarking on his PhD on probiotic bacteria in 2010.
