Research Interests

My MPhil and PhD research engages with how wild food knowledges in a given context can be harnessed for sustainable food security. Wild foods are those which are neither cultivated or purchased, but caught or collected, and are a key component of diets for some forest-dependent communities. This research will help assess the extent to which food security strategies might yield positive nutrition and health outcomes, while building on locally appropriate knowledge systems in relation to wild foods to inform effective interventions.
