Terry is Director of the Sustainable Places Research Institute at Cardiff University, where I’m an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Geography and Planning.

Terry is one of the authors of Feeding Britain: Food Security after Brexit a paper produced by The Food Research Collaboration which produces a range of Brexit Briefings, and Voices as part of its workstream on ‘Influencing Brexit to achieve food system sustainability
