I have worked on issues related to food poverty, cooking skills, local sustainable food supplies, the role of markets and co-ops in promoting health, farmers markets, food deserts & food access, retail concentration and globalisation. .
Contributions include chapters to books on public health and health. promotion I recently edited a special edition of the British Food Journal on food banks [2014, 116 (9)]. More recent work has included research on the European Most Deprived Persons Programme; a review of food taxation schemes and a critique of the English Responsibility Deal.
