Kate is nationally and internationally recognised as a social work academic and criminologist focusing on the socio-cultural contexts of violence, and men’s use of violence in particular, and the critical analysis of masculinities. She is especially interested in the complex interrelationships between violence, diverse masculinities, and hierarchies of identity and difference across the policy, prevention, and practice realms. Kate's research builds on her own experience in direct practice with men who use violence as well as her theoretical grounding across the fields of social work and criminology.
