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.
Nicole is an archaeologist with interests in ancient trade, exchange and cultural contact, species translocations, the origins and spread of agriculture, and the relationship between human activity and environmental change in the past.
