Dr. Brooke Rogers OBE is a Reader in Risk and Terror in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London where she co-directs the MA in Terrorism, Security and Society. Dr. Rogers is a social psychologist with an exceptional track record of designing and delivering over £21million of collaborative research projects funded by a variety of sources, including research councils (i.e. EPSRC, ESRC), government (i.e. Home Office, DSTL, CDE, CPNI, DHS), industry (i.e. Deloitte, EDF, BNFL, IRSN, National Grid), the European Commission, and more. The majority of these projects investigate public and practitioner responses to low likelihood, high-impact events such as chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) accidents or attacks. Others focus on protecting crowded places; business continuity resilience; pathways into violent radicalisation; insider threat; and community resilience.
