Emma is Associate Professor in Human Geography at the University of Southampton and an Honorary Research Associate at the School of Veterinary Science, University of Bristol. Emma is a leading trans-disciplinary scholar that develops from her core concerns as a social and cultural geographer in more-than-human geographies. She is comfortable working with those outside her discipline (veterinary science, food science, health science, rural studies, anthropology, engineering, the arts, and economics).
She has 20 years of experience studying the bodies, practices and materialities that constitute the spaces of producing, retailing and eating food, and more recently in the spaces of animal research.
Her work has received research funding from the ESRC, AHRC, the European Commission, the British Academy, the Wellcome Trust, EPSRC and the British Veterinary Association.
She is co-author (with Henry Buller) of the book ‘Food and Animal Welfare’ forthcoming in 2018, published by Bloomsbury Academic Publishing.
