I chose the Centre for Risk Research at Southampton University for my part-time PhD because of its unique pedigree as a specialist centre for both academics and practitioners. As a resilience professional, I wanted to study somewhere that respected experience and skilfully guided that experience to create new academic thought that challenges current paradigms. In an increasingly uncertain world, I wanted my studies to add value to resilience thinking and I needed a supportive and highly respected institution in which to do that.

Student Biography: I am a highly-qualified security director, specialising in internal and external stakeholder management. I have a reputation for nurturing human talent and I am widely experienced in leading, managing and developing high profile, multinational security and resilience teams both in the UK and in hostile environments overseas, including the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America. I am also an experienced crisis manager, resilience and business continuity professional, with much of my experience having been developed on the frontline of geopolitics as a military officer.

Supervisors: Dr Ian Dawson, Dr Alasdair Marshall
