Saher Hasnain

DPhil Candidate, School of Geography and the Environment

Saher is a geography doctoral student at the University of Oxford at the School of Geography and the Environment.

Her current research focuses on environmental health in the context of urban food environments in developing countries. She is particularly interested in food acquisition strategies, consumer behavior and personal interpretations and adaptations to food risks, particularly pesticide contamination and concerns about food system mechanization. Currently she is working on the influence of local and regional fuel scarcities, incidence of violence and the local built environment on food-related mobility within a city.

Saher has previously worked on environmental health issues through photovoice and mapping at the University of Pennsylvania, at the Department of Environmental Sciences and the development of energy management cultures at Bahria University.
