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.
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.
Yadvinder’s research interests focus on interactions between tropical ecosystems and the global atmosphere.
David is currently investigating the inter-relationships between insulin resistance and beta cell function, as well as the effects of a low carbohydrate diet in people with and without type 2 diabetes.
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.
