Lucy Easthope

photo of Lucy EasthopeProfessor Lucy Easthope is the country’s 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 became decidedly more mainstream.

​She is known globally for her work and holds research positions in the UK and New Zealand. She is a Professor in Mass Fatalities and Pandemics at the Centre for Death and Society, University of Bath.

​Her book When The Dust Settles: Stories of Love, Loss and Hope from an Expert in Disaster was released in March 2022 and was a Sunday Times bestseller.
