My principal interest is systems sustainability within the environmental, agricultural, food and healthcare sectors.
My research focuses on understanding the environmental outcomes that arise from current practices and how burdens might be mitigated to reduce human impact on the environment. My work considers resource use, everything from energy, and fertilisers to plastics, and the burdens that their use generates, so greenhouse gas emissions, pollutants and waste. I use environmental accounting techniques (life cycle assessment, carbon footprinting, mass balances) to examine the hotspots, trade-offs and impacts that occur within systems in order to identify reduction strategies.
I am currently working on an Innovate UK project called Insectrial Revolution which is using Black Soldier Fly as a means to convert food waste into a sustainable source of insect protein for use in UK aquaculture.
My teaching focuses on the same environmental, agricultural, food and healthcare sectors. I teach under- and post-graduate students within the School of Life Sciences, Warwick Medical School and Global Sustainable Development (School for Cross-faculty Studies).
