The member snapshot series provides a space for individual FCRN network members to introduce themselves and their work in no more than 150 words.

Her interdisciplinary research focuses on the climate, land use and health effects of different dietary scenarios as well as land use conflicts between food, feed and biofuels. In November 2013 Elinor defended her licentiate thesis with the title “Dietary change for sustainable food systems”.
