She is a member of the NATO Research Task Group developing a code of best practice for conducting survey research in military contexts and is the author of ‘Gender-responsive organizational climate assessments in Armed Forces’, a guidebook for the security sector. Dr Crompvoets has a BSc (hons) from the Uni of Melbourne, and a PhD from the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health at ANU.

Yin is an anarchist ecological activist committed to interrupting the devastating impacts of modern societies.
