Mike Bonsall is a population biologist and has research interests across range of disciplines including biodiversity, ecology, evolution, health and economics.
Oxford Food Research Network
Our network of food researchers spans a large number of departments and institutes at Oxford University. Since our definition of the food system is broad, so is the range of research interests covered by our network.
We are aware that we have not yet contacted everyone at the University with an interest in food research. If you are a researcher at Oxford, and would like to be involved in this food research network, please get in touch.
Researchers with the Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnership logo are supervisors on this training programme.
Lauren Coad is a James Martin Research Fellow at the Environmental Change Institute, investigating the effectiveness of protected areas in reducing deforestation, and the governance and sustainability of bushmeat hunting in Central Africa.
Marian Stamp Dawkins's research interests lie in animal welfare. She has a particular interest in the impact that pressure for more efficient food production might have on the welfare of food animals, especially poultry.
Martin Maiden's research aims to translate the findings of investigations into population biology and the evolution of bacterial pathogens into benefits for human health, through public health interventions such as vaccination.
Angela McLean’s research interests lie in the use of mathematical models to aid the understanding of the evolution and spread of infectious agents, with a current focus on Hepatitis C (HCV), HIV and influenza.
Tom Pizzari studies sexual behaviour and its evolutionary implications, using the chicken as a model species.
Oliver researches the epidemiology and evolution of infectious diseases, and is currently investigating influenza A viruses in poultry and swine.
David’s research interests lie in insect population ecology and the ecology and epidemiology of vector-borne diseases, in particular the African trypanosomiases, dengue, yellow fever, West Nile virus and bluetongue.
Adrian Smith’s research focuses on understanding the basis of immunity to infection, including the study of immune mechanisms that operate in birds and mammals.
