Biography

 

Katharine's research focuses on the implementation of legislation criminalizing the use of coercive and controlling behaviour against an intimate partner or family member in England and Wales. Coercive control is a damaging form of domestic abuse involving a pattern of behaviour ranging from intimidation, threats, and coercion to isolation, 'gaslighting,' and emotional and financial abuse. She is currently developing her Master's thesis into a doctoral research project exploring the multiagency response to coercive control in Thames Valley.
