Currently, Natalia holds a scholarship from QUT to undertake her research at the School of Management. She explores food waste governance in the food service business. The focus of the study is to understand how private governance responds to the challenges of reducing food waste in such establishments. Using qualitative research methods, she will investigate perceptions and knowledge about food waste management practices by managers and chefs of restaurants and cafes. She holds a Brazilian bachelor’s degree in agriculture science and has always been involved in food waste management initiatives. She has also worked for the Australian Centre for Culture, Environment, Society and Space at the University of Wollongong.
