The Centre for Global Food and Resources was established in mid 2016 and is based within the Faculty of the Professions. Previously it was a smaller unit called Global Food Studies.
Professor Wendy Umberger is the Executive Director of The Centre for Global Food and Resources.
Our team of dynamic researchers with global experience, work on agribusiness issues, food and resource policy, food security, the economics of food value chains, resource and environmental economics, consumer behaviour and the role of agriculture in growth and development.
We conduct research in Australia, South East Asia, the EU, North America, the Pacific Islands, and Africa. As a result we have strong research partnerships with life scientists, including agricultural, food, health and environmental scientists, as well as with industry, government and NGOs. Our researchers have a proven research track record in translating the fundamental science of agriculture, food and health.
We also offer comprehensive postgraduate education programs.
