Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Obesity
Areas of Expertise: food policy and marketing, food safety and nutrition economics, sustainability and corporate social responsibility

My research explores public policy, marketing and management issues within global food supply chains. I am particularly interested in how safety, nutrition and sustainability attributes are communicated, controlled, and (where appropriate) certified. These issues require special attention when considering the policy and international trade impact on various types and sizes of firms and farms and the responses of customers, consumers and stakeholders.
