Postdoctoral Researcher

Anneli Lofstedt


Anneli is a keen advocate for building healthier and sustainable food systems. Her PhD, at the University of Aberdeen, focused on linking fisheries and human nutrition, where she modelled novel harvesting strategies, optimising for quality (nutrients), as opposed to quantity (yield). During her postdoc, she created an open- source database, which mapped the UK seafood supply chain. Seafood will play an important role in UK diets as we transition to net zero. She is interested in modelling what the UK diet will look like under different policy scenarios. Anneli is passionate about communicating scientific research to wider audiences and is involved in various outreach initiatives.

Current Research

Anneli joined the Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science in May 2024 and is modelling the environmental impacts of the UK food system (funded by Wellcome Trust).
