Victoria trained as an agricultural economist and has worked more widely in the fields of agri-food marketing and value chain analysis for various academic, UN, charitable and commercial organisations. She completed her PhD on the impact of agricultural policy change on households in Jordan before moving to an EU Framework Project at University College London on farm diversification. She has worked at home and overseas on a number of food-related consultancy projects including a review of the evidence on the impact of a shift to more healthy diets in the UK (for DEFRA) and a scoping study for the design of a tool for monitoring environmental impact in agri-food value chains (for UNIDO). She is also an online tutor for SOAS in research methods and still undertakes consultancy work related to the objectives of the Food Research Collaboration.
