Prof Tim Benton’s research interests focus around how we can most “sustainably” produce more food for the growing global population, whilst coping with climate change, reduction in carbon usage, and by not simply using more land. His research career has been focussed on the linkage between organisms and environmental changes, and his research in the agri-environment sphere also focusses on how farming drives ecological dynamics (at field, landscape and larger scales, up to global). He is also interested in food system resilience under climate threats. He has used a variety of techniques through his career (including field and lab work, statistical, numerical and analytical modelling).
