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.
