Einir Pritchard


I joined Sheffield Hallam University in May 2007 as a senior lecturer in food technology. My work is divided between teaching undergraduate food and nutrition courses and managing commercial and training projects for clients.

I have been involved in education and training within further and higher education system in the UK for the past eight years, and have conducted research into the use of e-media as a distance learning tool for the food industry.

I have also worked internationally for organisations including the Food and Agricultural Organisation, United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, Heinz and the former New Zealand Dairy Board, working in food quality management, new product development and supply chain management.
