The Balancing Act: Defence sustainability versus the Sustainability of Defence

She currently works for the Ministry Of Defence climate change and sustainability group, where she researches long term climate change impacts on UK military strategy. She is a former RUSI fellow, and has researched the operational response to fallen soldiers, the 1906 Geneva Convention and the archaeological legacy of war in Western Europe.
