Christian also researches sustainable cookery; food history; and the political power of food in international relations.
- Christian is the Principal Investigator of 1) the NERC Sustainable Plastics Packaging project: “Reducing plastic packaging and food waste through product innovation simulation.” This project has created a Household Simulation Model to focus on plastic food packaging to help manufactures provide the right type of packaging to reduce both food and plastic waste. This model is currently used by WRAP and industry to reduce food waste in many food products. 2) The Alpro Foundation funded project: “Communicating the environmental impact of plant-based recipes”. This project produces a tool that calculates the calories, the biodiversity, economic, and climate benefits of plant-based recipes.
