My research interests are: food-related policy – past and present; policy integration; policy coherence; food policymaking processes and structures; and systems approaches to food more broadly (including systems thinking).
 

I'm currently working at the University of Hertfordshire, in its Centre for Agriculture, Food and Environmental Management Research:

I have a PhD in Food Policy, and a Masters in Food and Nutrition Policy from the Centre for Food Policy at City University of London.

I previously worked as a journalist specialising in food law, policy, and sustainable food, for example as a correspondent for the weekly Informa journal EU Food Law.

I have also worked in civil society, for Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming. I was deputy editor of its magazine Jellied Eel, London's 20,000-circulation free magazine about ethical eating in the capital. www.thejelliedeel.org. And a project officer on Ethical Eats - the network of restaurants and caterers that care about sustainability, running events like Nose-to-Tail Fortnight, and Urban Food Fortnight.
