Pete's research focusses are population approached to improve nutrition and the relationship between public health and environmental sustainability. His nutrition research focuses on influences of food choice, including food price, food labelling, marketing of foods and food accessibility.
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.
Robert has research activities in monographing Ipomoea, the genus which includes sweet potato, and specifically identifying Crop Wild Relatives of sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas).
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.
Andrew Smith’s research is focused on the investigation of the molecular basis of plant adaptations to drought, salinity and metals.
Charles' research looks at the role of attention in multisensory perception, including sensory perception of food.
Marco is interested in policy analysis and questions related to sustainability.
Prof. John Stein FRCP, FMedSci studies the link between impaired visuomotor control and nutrition, in particular omega 3 fish oils.
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.
David's research integrates political economy and public health.
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.
