Policy Lead - Future of Lowland Peat, Defra
CAPE Policy Fellow

Dr Chris Moses is a civil servant at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, working at the intersection of government's net zero ambitions and the UK's agricultural transition. His Defra experiences include peatland, agriculture, protected landscapes, access, and biodiversity. He previously worked for the Cabinet Office on crisis management and the UK's exit from the European Union.

Prior to joining the civil service, Chris was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge. His doctoral research, looking at questions of community, place, and meaning, comprised 18 months' ethnographic fieldwork volunteering with civil society organisations, and its impacts included engagement with government, media, and community institutions.
