Dr Darias is a tenured research scientist at the French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development (IRD, France). She conducts research for sustainable aquaculture development in low- and middle-income countries, and currently focuses on nutrition-sensitive aquaculture. Research interests include aquatic animal physiology and nutrition, in particular during early life stages, and the nutritional value of aquatic foods. Dr Darias leads the African Interdisciplinary Laboratory in Sustainable and Nutrition-Sensitive Marine Aquaculture (LIMAQUA), coordinated by South Africa and France, whose aim is to develop an interdisciplinary research and training program grounded in the principles of the sustainability science to address the nutritional and sustainability challenges of marine aquaculture in the region. Moreover, she is the coordinator of the Research Network for Sustainable Marine Aquaculture in Africa (AfriMAQUA) that brings together researchers from South Africa, Namibia, Mauritius, Tanzania, Kenya, Senegal, Ivory Coast, and France.
