She has been closely involved throughout her career with strategy and doctrine development internationally as well as turning policy and strategy into concrete plans and action. As a Colonel in the UK Army Reserves, she is spending the academic year 2023/24 as a full time Member of the Global Strategy Programme at the Royal College of Defence Studies

Thammy has published with Carnegie Europe, Chatham House, British Army Review, Modern Asian Studies, and Small Wars Journal on topics of ecological and regenerative security, security sector reform, human security, China, gendered analysis, and on travel. She is a speaker and facilitator for a variety of organisations and conferences.
