Emma Burnett is a researcher and writer.

She currently works at Fielden Whisky, where she is researching environmental and economic sustainability of grain production for distilling, and best practices for regenerative agriculture in arable systems.

She completed her doctoral research at the Centre for Agroecology, Water & Resilience. Her PhD focused on self-organisation, competition, cooperation, and resilience in local agri-food systems. Emma’s experiences are deeply rooted in Oxford’s food scene. In 2012, along with four others, she co-founded Cultivate, a cooperative social enterprise that worked to produce and distribute local food within Oxfordshire, and to help the community get involved in food-related issues and solutions. Before that, she got an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from Oxford University.

Emma also writes science communication and fiction. She has been published in the Conversation, Urban Food Futures, and Good Food Oxfordshire’s blog. Her fiction has appeared in Apex Magazine, Radon, Mythaxis, Utopia Magazine, MetaStellar, Milk Candy Review, Elegant Literature, Roi Fainéant, The Sunlight Press, JAKE, Rejection Letters, and more.
