The HESTIA Farm Sustainability Toolkit and field trials.

HESTIA Project Coordinator

Emily Hogg


I studied Geography at both undergraduate and postgraduate level and have always been fascinated by its interdisciplinarity. I am particularly interested in the interface between conservation and environmental psychology, with a focus on nudge theory for food-related environmental behaviours. I am interested in how sustainable diets can become commonplace and how data can support positive change for people and the planet.

Prior to joining the HESTIA project in August 2022, I was a Senior Grants Officer in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford.


I am a cultural geographer with an interest in furthering discourse between the humanities, social and life sciences. I hold an MSc with Distinction in Environment, Politics and Society from University College London, where my postgraduate research embodied a phenomenological study of the modern inhabitants of St Kilda, Scotland. Within this work, I used ethnographic research methods to understand how biologists, archaeologists, historians and paleo-biologists dwelled within their landscape and created communities in a highly liminal and ritualistic environment. I am fundamentally interested in how people experience and engage with the non-human world.

Current Research

I am the Project Coordinator for the HESTIA programme, where I support the team to achieve key outcomes. I have also recently published a paper in Theologywhere I discuss the value of Biblical narratives for inspiring hopeful action amongst Christian communities in the face of the ecological crisis.
