Dr. Alfred Gathorne-Hardy

I joined SIAS in October 2011, where I was a researcher on the ESRC/DfID funded project: ‘The Materiality of Rice’, led by Professor Barbara Harriss-White.  I am now a Junior Research Fellow at Somerville College, and convene and lecture the geography MSc elective, Global Environmental Change and Food Security.

Both food and a healthy environment are essential for human existence.  Food production at the scale required to feed the present population inevitably damages the environment.   This damage is at such a scale to seriously threaten human existence.
