Profile

Damian is a rural geographer with research interests in various aspects of agri-food restructuring, and has worked at the CCRI since 2007. Damian is working across three research areas at present. First, he has a long-term research interest in alternative and local food networks. Second, he is working on projects related to animal and plant disease management, including a project examining farmer confidence in badger vaccination. Lastly, he is interested in debates about food security.

Damian is currently working on the following EU research projects:
• (2015-2019) EU Horizon 2020 funded SUFISA (Sustainable finance for sustainable agriculture and fisheries).
• (2013-2016) EU 7th Framework funded GLAMUR (Global and Local food chain Assessment: a MUltidimensional performance-based approach).
• (2013-2016) EU 7th Framework funded Supurbfood (Towards Sustainable Modes of Urban and Peri-urban Food Provisioning).
