Leonie Dendler is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment working within the risk communication department on stakeholder management and public engagement in science-based consumer protection. She previously worked for the Sustainable Consumption Institute and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester (UK) and Fudan University (China). An environmental scientist by training with a PhD from Manchester Business School (UK), her wider research interest lies in understanding institutional change processes across international consumption and production systems with a particular focus on food.

She is a board member of the Global Research Forum on Sustainable Production and Consumption and has written, reviewed and edited for various peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Cleaner Production and Energy Policy.
