Lucy is a leading authority on recovering from disaster. For over two decades she has challenged others to think differently about what comes next, after tragic events. She is a passionate and thought-provoking voice in an area that few know about: emergency planning. However in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic, her work has become decidedly more mainstream. She has advised government departments, corporations, emergency and health services and charities throughout her career. Her new book ‘When The Dust Settles’ is a Sunday Times Bestseller. She is a Professor in Practice of Risk and Hazard at the University of Durham where she Co-Founded the After Disaster Network, Fellow in Mass Fatalities and Pandemics at the Centre for Death and Society, University of Bath and a Research Associate at the Joint Centre for Disaster Research, Massey University, New Zealand.
