She joined SIPRI in 2019 where she works on issues related to sustainable peace and the triple nexus. Caroline is also one of the focal points for the Global Registry of Violent Deaths (GReVD). She has a background in both academic and policy-oriented research, specialising in how security is understood, practised and produced in conflict and post-conflict transition contexts.
