Katie is a Research Fellow in the Pain Lab at The University of Southampton. She is currently working on the BEACON study - a multisite research study funded by Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity to develop a validated tool to assess breakthrough pain in children. She previously worked on the PARAMOUNT study, which explored the barriers and facilitators to paediatric pain management at end-of-life and developed an in-depth tool (eBook) to support family caregivers to manage pain.  

Katie has conducted quantitative, qualitative and mixed-methods research with children and young people, parents and healthcare professionals. She has previously worked as a medical writer for a large agency. She has also worked for NHS England in Patient and Public Engagement.

She completed her PhD at the University of Nottingham, which focused on the development of multisensory integration in autism spectrum disorders.
