Matt is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Food Systems & Global Change research group, housed in the Cornell CALS Department of Global Development, where he works on EAT-Lancet 2.0 and other cross-cutting initiatives. His research broadly focuses on the ‘how’ of transformation towards healthy diets and sustainable, just food systems. Matt’s work aims to widen the analytical and narrative lens through which we imagine fundamental food systems change. Within this, his research explores questions surrounding alternative food systems, degrowth and post-growth, social change, and the political economy of food systems. To explore these complex and contested domains he uses quantitative and qualitative approaches including scenario analysis, agent-based modeling, document analysis, food systems modeling, and elicitation techniques. Before joining Cornell, Matt completed his PhD at Imperial College London where his research examined approaches to food systems transformation.
