Professor Lucy Easthope is the country’s leading expert on emergency planning and disaster recovery and is a Professor in Practice of Risk and Hazard at the University of Durham, co-founder of the After Disaster Network as well as a Fellow in Mass Fatalities and Pandemics at the Centre for Death and Society at the University of Bath. Most recently she advised on the planning of the late Queen’s lying-in-state and funeral but her astonishing career has embraced everything from the September 11 attacks, the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, the 7 July 2005 London bombings, the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster, the 2014 Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 shootdown, the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire and the COVID-19 pandemic . This is the woman you need beside you when a siren sounds. Her memoir, When the Dust Settles, was named one of the best non-fiction books to read in 2022 by the Evening Standard and one of the best biographies of 2022 by The Telegraph.  She'll be in conversation with Tiffany Murray.
