Sarah Gall is a DPhil student at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford. Her DPhil project is focused on questions around land-use trade-offs between different objectives such as food security, climate mitigation and biodiversity and how sustainability targets and political interventions can navigate those interdependencies towards a more sustainable land-use future. In particular, the project aims to identify trade-offs, localize key focus areas, examine policy goals, and their implications for the development of new regulations and funding schemes.
Her research is done in cooperation with the FABLE UK Team (Food, Agriculture, Biodiversity, Land-Use, and Energy Consortium) and as part of the Oxford Martin School’s LEAP (Livestock, Environment And People) project and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
Sarah has a master’s degree in Environmental Engineering with distinction from the Technical University in Munich. As part of her master’s, she did research on water quality and water treatment infrastructure at Stanford University and the University of California, Davis.
