Research Interest


Widya Indriani was born and grew up in Bandung, Indonesia. She completed her undergraduate study majoring in Food Technology at Padjadjaran University. Afterward, she started her professional career in the food and beverage industry as Quality Assurance for a restaurant chain in Indonesia. Due to her interest in food science and its association with human health, she continued to study human nutrition in 2018 at the University of Glasgow, Scotland. She received a scholarship from the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP).


Before joining i3L, Widya worked at a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara, as a research assistant. She worked on a collaborative research project between the NGO and World Health Organization (WHO) on antenatal care during pregnancy.

Her research interests are in Maternal and Child Nutrition, Public Health Nutrition and Eating Behavior, and Health and Wellness Product Development. She conducted a study on Validation in Translation of the Universal Feeding Scale for Children Aged 6-24 Months in Indonesia for her master’s final project. During her master’s study, she took Public Health Nutrition as her specialization. She believes that along with nutrition education, a synergy between governmental, industrial, and community sectors can contribute significantly to the public’s health and wellbeing.
