Biography

I am an interdisciplinary social scientist with a background in sociology, human geography and latterly management. Before moving to the University of Huddersfield, I worked in the School of Geography and Planning at Cardiff University and for Cities Research Centre at UWE: Bristol. Throughout this period, my research has focused very broadly on 'sustainable communities' and 'sustainable food systems'. My current research interests revolve around; 1) place-based food systems and the circular economy, and; 2) the role of food entrepreneurs in ethnic and religious food markets. 

Before I bacame an academic, I worked for Oxfam in fairtrade for a number of years. My teaching has a specific focus on food sustainability, circular economy and envirornmental policy at both UG and PG level. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the Norbert Elias Foundation. For a complete list of talks before 2014 see www.johnlever.com.
