Research Biography

Currently a Senior Lecturer in Social Work, Kate joined Flinders University in 2014. Prior to this she worked as a Lecturer in Criminology at Charles Sturt University in NSW. Kate’s research interest - in gender, masculinities and violence – emerged from her social work practice with adult offenders, including those convicted of child sex and other violent offences, and spans the disciplinary fields of social work and criminology. Kate is especially interested in the framing of violence in the policy, prevention, and practice realms, and the ways in which this reflects and reinforces structural inequalities. Kate is a founding member of the University’s Social Work Innovation Research Living Space (SWIRLS), led by Professor Sarah Wendt, and is also a member of the Centre for Research on Men and Masculinities (CROMM) based at University of Wollongong, NSW.
