Dr Laura Colebrooke
Postdoctoral Research Associate


With a background of working in community and volunteer organisations and local food networks in particular, I came into academia with a desire to help communities overcome structural challenges and inequalities. Carrying out my PhD research into food insecurity in Bristol, helped me to broaden my interest in politics to better understand the complexities within the ways in which inequalities are experienced in everyday life.  

Broad research specialisms

I am a cultural geographer with interests in the everyday experiences of wellbeing in contexts of inequality. My research broadly looks at community-based projects to improve wellbeing and my specialisms include food studies, actor-network theories and cultural geographies of affect and embodiment.
