Kathryn has been involved in a number of projects for CCHPR, including work for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation on forced moves and evictions, two projects for the National House Building Council researching downsizing and multi generational living, and a project for the Welsh Government looking at letting agents fees to tenants. She recently completed a project for Commonweal Housing researching shared housing options for non-resident parents, and a study for the Centre for Digital Built Britain into the uptake of digital tools in the UK house building sector.

She is also evaluating the Young Foundation's Reimaging Rent 'housing accelerator' for ventures tackling inequality in the private rented sector, and a London Strategic Housing Initiative on behalf of Trust for London and Citizens UK.

Kathryn gave a presentation on forced moves and evictions at the Housing Studies Association conference in April 2017, as part of the early career researcher stream. She also presented on the link between housing and health at a workshop on Stigma, Health and Inequality in January 2018, and presented her work on non-resident parents in shared housing at the Housing Studies Association conference in April 2018.
