I'm a PhD researcher exploring the relationships between food poverty and food waste, through a comparative study of different surplus food redistribution organisations in the UK and North America. I'm particularly interested in the balancing of social and environmental justice, using theory (for example, 'urban political ecology') as well as engaging with the diversity of food practices and activism that animates my city and beyond. I seek to better understand and challenge the roots of inequality and feel incredibly privileged to have been able to research the international dimensions of food insecurity and waste through my Fellowship. In the precious free time afforded a PhD, I love to cycle, especially with a tent on my bike, and have been working on my food growing skills.
