Henry works principally in the area of more-than-human geographies, notably animal geographies. He is involved in a number of national and international research projects and professional activities that seek to bring a critical social science understanding to issues associated with farm and working animal health and welfare in contemporary production systems and food supply chains, including, most recently, the use of antimicrobial medicines in livestock systems in different countries around the world. He also works on issues of wild species re-introduction and upon the conceptual and methodological approaches to social science framings and understandings of human/animal interactions. Henry leads the cross-council AMR Theme 4 ESRC-funded Diagnostic Innovation and Livestock (DIAL) consortium with the University of Bristol and the University of Edinburgh.

Steve is a social scientist committed to using cutting edge spatial and social science understanding in issues of public and environmental interest. He leads an AMR cross-council/DoH/DEFRA project on ‘Production without medicalisation’ looking at the production, disease and pharmaceutical pressures and solutions in shrimp and prawn aquaculture in Bangladesh, with partners at the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS), Worldfish Bangladesh and the Association for Realisation of Basic Needs (ARBAN). Steve is also a Co-I on the ESRC-led AMR cross-council Theme 4 ‘Diagnostic innovation and livestock: towards more effective and sustainable applications of antibiotics in livestock farming’ (DIAL consortium project).
