Research Interests

Food Waste; Food Consumption; Sustainable consumption

Vision Statement

My research concerns the food consumption practices of both consumers and businesses, paying particular attention to wasteful habits, routines and behaviours. The transgressive and boundary crossing nature of food means that our interactions as consumers are both embodied and embedded within factors of space, place, nature, culture, society and technology. My research is underlined by a need to move towards more sustainable arrangements of food consumption for consumers and business and intends to understanding the wider social, economic and environment context of food in society to address waste at the prevention stage.
