Professor Tony Ryan OBE leads the University of Sheffield’s programme in sustainability research, across pure and applied sciences, engineering and social sciences.
His focus is on the global food, water and energy nexus challenge, feeding a growing world population, reducing the impacts of agriculture and food production that account for 25-30% of greenhouse gas emissions, and harnessing the power of the sun for food production and renewable energy.
He has worked with learned societies from The Royal Society to Chatham House.
Our Scholars work on projects which will help the world reach the targets set out in the SDGs. Supervised by academics from across academic disciplines, the Scholars also have the benefit of expertise from business and policy experts.
