Lucy has a background in coastal engineering, holding a Masters and undergraduate degree. She currently works as a Principal Consultant based in Southampton providing emergency preparedness and response readiness services globally.
After carrying out responder training in the Operations department to gain practical experience, Lucy joined the Consultancy department where she has project managed and delivered various projects, exercises and reviews for oil and gas companies with offshore and inland operations. Lucy conducted dispersant efficacy testing offshore during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, in the Gulf of Mexico, a valuable real spill experience from which the learning can be transferred into practical use during planning.
