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.

University Lecturer in Infectious Diseases & Fellow of St Catherine’s College

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.

Professor of Experimental Psychology & University Lecturer, Somerville College

Charles' research looks at the role of attention in multisensory perception, including sensory perception of food.

James Martin Fellow, Oxford Martin School

Marco is interested in policy analysis and questions related to sustainability.

Emeritus Professor of Physiology

Prof. John Stein FRCP, FMedSci studies the link between impaired visuomotor control and nutrition, in particular omega 3 fish oils.

Oxford Martin Fellow, Restatements Researcher

Dr Andrea Stephens is working on the Restatements project within the Future of Food programme, reviewing the evidence base underlying areas of current policy concern. She is interested in how science can be used to inform policy and management decisions.

Reader in Plant Biochemistry

Lee’s research aims to increase our understanding of regulation of flux through plant metabolic networks and to exploit this knowledge for engineering increased yield and quality of crops and for increased production of useful metabolic end-products.

Professor of Ecology and Fellow of New College

Jeremy’s research focuses on understanding the factors that determine change in species’ abundance, distributions and specializations.

Director, MSc Environmental Change & Management & Senior Research Fellow

Tom’s research interests are in the sustainability and local management of indigenous food systems.

Associate Professor & Tutorial Fellow, Queen’s College

Lindsay’s research interests focus on how and why plant species differ from one another and what the consequences are for ecosystems.

Professor of Human Ecology & Director of the Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity

Stanley's research interests centre on the biocultural ecology of human populations past and present, and nutritional anthropology.

Professor of Water Science and Fellow of St Peter's College & Director of the NERC Macronutrients Cycles Programme

Paul researches the interplay between environmental management of major problems such as climate change and pollution control and the development and application of new mathematical techniques for modelling environmental systems.

Kremlin Wickramasinghe, Researcher, Nuffield Department of Population Health

Kremlin joined the British Heart Foundation Centre on Population Approaches for Non-Communicable Disease Prevention (BHF CPNP) in 2009 to work on the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and associated risk factors.

Professor of Biodiversity & Director of Science at Kew Gardens

Kathy's research interests focus on biodiversity responses to environmental change and the dynamic processes of species and their interactions with the environment over a range of timescales.

Senior Researcher at the Environmental Change Institute
