Kat is currently a Researcher on the SILVER Study, funded by Connected Health Cities. This study is exploring how health data can be shared with social care to support families with children who are involved with multiple services.
Between 2016 and 2017 Kat was Project Coordinator for the study 'Perinatal Mental Health in Rural North Yorkshire - assessing the needs and experiences of mothers and service providers'.
In 2010 Kat was awarded an NIHR Training Fellowship to undertake a PhD part time (2010 - 2016). The study was a sociological exploration of women, alcohol and stress. The project used qualitative methods to explore 'women's alcohol use in relation to stress'. The study made inferences about intervention approaches to alcohol harm reduction for women that are appropriate and relevant to women's lives.
Prior to the PhD Kat 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). Kat has also worked as researcher in the private sector, research projects included evaluations of local Sure Start Programmes across England.
