Joseph Poore

Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on Food Sustainability

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. HESTIA provides data and models that allow us to better understand the environmental impacts of different agricultural products and production practices. 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 in Land Economy from the University of Cambridge. He then worked in management consulting in London for four years. Following that he completed his D.Phil in Biology from the University of Oxford.
