Chris Holloway is currently Visiting Research Fellow at the Changing Character of War Centre at Pembroke College, University of Oxford. He comes from the Australian Department of Defence, where he has worked in recent years to develop accounts of the Australian Defence Force’s Future Operating Environment and associated military-strategic concepts of operation. He has an extensive background in capability analysis with particular application to the development of future force design options and the identification of capability risk. In 2016 Chris was seconded to the Development Concepts and Doctrine Centre (UK Ministry of Defence) and in 2014 to the Australian National University to undertake research into ideas of sovereignty in cyberspace. He holds a BA(Hons) from the University of Melbourne and postgraduate degrees from the Universities of Melbourne and New South Wales, and the Australian National University. Whilst at CCW, Chris will seek to analyse large-scale trends and changes in the organisation of political authority and the implications these might have for the historical structure of warfare.
