Research Overview

I am interested in the ecological, social and economic sustainability of food production, and how the way we produce what we eat mediates our relationships, as humans, with the environment. I take a particular interest in the way we relate to, and manage, the animals we use as food, and the practicalities and materialities of the meat industry, from the catching of wild fish to the production of beef and dairy.

My current research forms part of the NERC funded project SLURRY-MAX, led by Dr Claire Waterton. Here, we're looking at the networks of policy, equipment and practices that form the management of livestock slurry in the UK, and how the valuable nutrient cycles that this forms part of can best be integrated into farm-level practices.
