I am currently leading the Global Food Security project at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. The research explores dependencies and distortions in food systems, in agri-food supply chains, and in the food-water-energy nexus. My particular interests are to better understand what shocks might threaten global food and nutritional security, what the consequences of such disruptions may be, and how we can work to mitigate these risks; with a focus on the development of innovative technologies and assessing the sustainability performance of novel food systems (and "future foods"). I completed my doctoral research in UCL Faculty of Engineering Sciences, focusing on Science and Technology Policy, where I was also a Lab Researcher in the Urban Innovation Lab. I was a Research Scholar at Columbia University, studied Environmental Sciences at Balliol College, University of Oxford, and was a member of the Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Program in the University of Oxford.
