Dr Dan Lomas
Lecturer in Intelligence and Security Studies

Summary

I joined Brunel University as Lecturer in Intelligence & Security Studies in October 2021. Previously, I was an Arts and Humanities Research Council funded PhD student (2009-2013) and Lecturer in International History (2014 - 2021) at the University of Salford. 

My research specialises in the use of intelligence to support policymaking, particularly the history of the UK's intelligence community. Currently, my research focuses on the areas of national security vetting, diversity and inclusion in the UK's agencies and, most recently, a new history of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6).
