Dr Tara Garnett

Tara is a researcher at the University of Oxford, a fellow of the Oxford Martin School, and the Director of TABLE. A collaboration between the University of Oxford, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Wageningen University and Research, TABLE is a platform for knowledge and dialogue on the future of food.

Tara’s work centres on the interactions among food, climate, health and broader sustainability issues; she has a particular interest in livestock as a sector where many of these converge. She is also interested in how knowledge is communicated to and interpreted by policy makers, civil society organisations and industry, and in the values that these different stakeholders bring to food problems and possible solutions.
