Chloe Clifford Astbury

Chloe is a post-doctoral fellow with Global Food System & Policy Research in the School of Global Health at York University, investigator with the Global Strategy Lab and member of the Dahdaleh Institute for Global Health Research. Chloe is interested in the transition to a healthier, fairer and more sustainable food system through integrated food system policy across food production and agriculture, processing, trade and public health. She is also interested in how the food system intersects with food practices and lived experience. Her current work focuses on the application of systems thinking to food system policy for the prevention of both communicable and non-communicable diseases.

Chloe completed her PhD in Epidemiology at the University of Cambridge, focusing on home food preparation and its relevance and potential for improving diet quality at the population level. She also holds a BA in Anthropology and an MPH from the University of Cambridge.

Chloe is a recipient of the Milo Keynes Prize for Outstanding Dissertation in Cambridge University’s School of Clinical Medicine and a recent winner of the International Policy Ideas Challenge sponsored by Global Affairs Canada.

Chloe has previously worked with policy and research organisations locally, nationally and globally including the World Health Organization European Office for Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases, Public Health England, the International Development Research Centre and the UK House of Commons.
