Dr Katrin Hohl's (SFHEA) research has two strands: police responses to sexual violence & domestic abuse and public trust in the police. Her research has examined the attrition processes through which reports of rape fail to result in a full police investigation, charge and prosecution, as well as the police response to domestic violence and abuse, including during the Covid-19 pandemic. The second strand of her research centres on public trust in the police, police legitimacy, compliance with the law and cooperation with the police.
Katrin has a strong background in quantitative research methods but has branched out into qualitative methods and favours multi-method research designs.
Dr Hohl is the academic lead of Operation Soteria/Bluestone (with Professor Betsy Stanko OBE) funded by the Home office. Operation Soteria began in September 2021 and is an academic-police collaborative programme that aims to transform policing and improve criminal justice outcomes for rape and sexual offences, as well as victim-survivors' experience of the criminal justice process. The programme builds on the influential pathfinder Project Bluestone with Avon & Somerset Police.
Dr Hohl was the Principal Investigator of UKRI-ESRC funded project "Responding to the Covid-19 domestic abuse crisis: building a police evidence base" with Co-Investigator Dr Kelly Johnson (Durham University), June 2020 - December 2021.
She was also the Principal Investigator on the Police Knowledge Fund (hefce/Home Office) project that developed evidence-based training for Sexual Offences Investigation Trained Officers (SOIT), 2015-2017.
Dr Hohl joined City as a lecturer in 2012 shortly after completing her PhD at the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). She received multiple scholarships and awards, including the LSE Graduate Merit Award, an ESRC +3 scholarship and the German DAAD Doctoral scholarship.
Dr Hohl is a member of the Centre for City Criminology.
Katrin teaches a range of courses in criminology and quantitative research methods: Criminology; Key Issues in Criminology; Policing; Doing Sociology: Quantitative Methods; Research Methods Workshop on Data Analysis.
