Professor Tim Lang, head of the Centre for Food Policy, said: 'Dr Storstad joining the Centre for 2012/13 is really welcome. We have long had good relations with the Centre for Rural Research in Norway, where she is based. That Centre is a famous and vibrant research institution, so we were delighted when this opportunity for Oddveig to come to City for a year came up. She is looking at many things which interest us too, notably consumer attitudes to food and rural matters.'
