Katherine is currently Project Coordinator for the study 'Perinatal Mental Health in Rural North Yorkshire - assessing the needs and experiences of mothers and service providers'.
Katherine was awarded an NIHR Training Fellowship to undertake a PhD part time (2010 - 2016). The title of the PhD was 'A sociological exploration of women, alcohol and stress; towards developing a self care intervention'. The project used qualitative methods to explore 'women's alcohol use in relation to stress'. The findings of the study will be used to make inferences about intervention approaches to alcohol harm reduction, that are appropriate and relevant to women's lives.
Prior to the PhD Katherine worked as an academic researcher on the 'Screening and Intervention Programme for Sensible Drinking' (Newcastle University) and 'The Self Care for People and Self Care for Professionals Study' (Leeds Beckett University). Katherine has also worked as researcher in the private sector, research projects included evaluations of local Sure Start Programmes across England.
