Research interests

Katie graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 1991 with a BA (Hons) in Politics. She went on to do a PhD in the Department of Government there. She took up her first research post in 1994 at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Glasgow University where she led a project on chronic illness in young people. She has worked at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit at Glasgow University since 1996, initially on the SHARE project, evaluating a specially designed teacher-led sex education package. More recently, Katie has undertaken a study exploring the sexual and reproductive health needs of young offenders and a review of parenting interventions for incarcerated male young offenders, with a view to developing and evaluating a promising programme in the longer term. She is currently involved in the process evaluation for the THRIVE trial, with a particular interest in exploring whether and how parenting interventions can help break negative inter-generational cycles of parenting practices/behaviour. Katie's interests include parenting interventions, young people, realist evaluation and qualitative methods.
