Biografie

Jessica Duncan is an Assistant Professor in the Rural Sociology Group. Originally from Canada, she lived in France, Spain and the UK before coming to the Netherlands. She holds a PhD in Food Policy from City University London and is the author of the book Global Food Security Governance: Civil society engagement in the reformed Committee on World Food Security (Routledge, 2015).

She researches the politics of sustainable food systems by focusing on the politics of participation in food policy processes and the possibilities food policies provide (or limit) for sustainable food systems transition. Her work is primarily  based on empirically grounded sociology.

In 2017 she was awarded Teacher of the Year for Wageningen Univeristy. She was shortlisted again in 2018 and 2019. With the funding she recieved she launched a story-telling training series to help students learn to tell the stories that matter to them. 

She is chair of the Wageningen Young Academy and sits on the editorial board of the journal Sociologia Ruralis. 

She is learning to play piano. She is not very good (yet).
