Kathleen joined SCPHRP in 2017 and has since worked on projects focussed around intervention development and evaluation. In January 2019, Kathleen began studying for a PhD at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision Professor Ruth Jepson and Dr Larry Doi. Her PhD aims to investigate the implementation of large-scale public health policies using realist research methods.
Kathleen is also a member of the research team commissioned by the Scottish Government to evaluate the Universal Health Visiting Pathway. The team is currently being led by Dr Larry Doi. Kathleen is interested in exploring knowledge gaps between research, policy and practice in public health. Particularly, with a focus on the uptake and influence of evidence in policy-making and in turn the implementation of policies into practice. Kathleen holds an honours degree in Neuroscience from the University of Dundee and a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from the University of Edinburgh.
