Viola King Forbes

Research Programme Coordinator

Viola coordinates both the LEAP and HESTIA programmes at the Oxford Martin School.

She graduated with a B.A. (Hons) in Geography from the University of Oxford, where she became particularly interested in sustainable food systems and the research-policy nexus. Her undergraduate research looked at farmers’ experiences of changing their production practices and she has since worked on a farm to gain some practical experience in the field. She is also interested in wider questions about our relationship with nature and how it may be reframed in the Anthropocene.
