Joseph’s research seeks to increase our understanding of the environmental impacts of agriculture and create solutions to mitigate these impacts.
He is currently building the HESTIA platform as part of the Oxford Martin Programme on Food Sustainability Analytics. HESTIA enables researchers and producers to store the environmental impacts of different products and production practices in an open, transparent, and consistent way. The platform aims to make significant progress on sharing the latest agronomic science with food producers globally, supporting science based reductions in food’s environmental impacts.
Joseph earned his MA and M.Phil from the University of Cambridge. Following that he worked for four years in management consulting in London. He is also pursuing a NERC funded D.Phil in Zoology at the University of Oxford assessing the extent and consequences of land-use change.
