Dr Stephen MacKenzie is an interdisciplinary scientist, experienced in conducting research into the environmental impacts caused by livestock systems and the potential changes to feeding, breeding and management practices to mitigate these negative impacts. He is currently a Research Fellow in poultry supply chains at the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security, the University of Edinburgh.
Before joining the University of Edinburgh, Stephen had simultaneous Post-Doctoral roles at Newcastle University and Trinity College Dublin. At Trinity College Dublin he was part of the SHARECITY Team in 2018-2020 investigating how technology is proliferating new forms of food sharing and food waste reduction in cities around the world.
In this role, he led research and engagement activities to create the SHARE IT online Toolkit which enables food sharing initiatives to create Sustainability Impact Assessment reports. SHARE IT has already been used by charities such as FoodCloud Ireland who organise a food redistribution network across Ireland, and Ackerdemia who run a national network of school gardens in Germany to create annual sustainability impact reports.
