Professor Katrin Hohl's research has two strands. The first is concerned with how police respond to sexual and domestic violence and abuse. The second strand centres on public trust in the police, police legitimacy and the application of procedural justice theory to police interactions with victim-survivors of rape and sexual assault.
Katrin has a strong background in quantitative research methods and often uses multi-method research designs, combining quantitative and qualitative methods. Her research has had significant impact on policy and practice in multiple police forces, the Home Office, the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC), amongst others. Her research has informed numerous national and international government strategies and reports, as well as third-sector sexual and domestic violence organisations.
Katrin is the joint academic lead of Operation Soteria - Bluestone (£6.65 million, joint PI with Prof Betsy Stanko OBE, 2021-2023). Operation Soteria - Bluestone is a Home Office funded, NPCC-led academic-police collaborative programme that aims to radically and sustainably improve procedural justice and outcome justice for rape and other sexual offences. The programme builds on the groundbreaking pathfinder Project Bluestone with Avon & Somerset Police.
Previously, Katrin was the Principal Investigator of theUKRI-ESRC funded project "Responding to the Covid-19 domestic abuse crisis: building a police evidence base" with Co-Investigator Dr Kelly Johnson (Durham University), 2020-2021.
Katrin 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.
Katrin joined City as a lecturer in 2012, shortly after completing her PhD in Research Methods at the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Her career has been interrupted by two years of maternity leave.
Katrin has received multiple scholarships and awards, including the LSE Graduate Merit Award, an ESRC +3 scholarship as well as the highly competitive German DAAD doctoral scholarship. Katrin is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (SFHEA) in recognition of her sustained and effective contribution to strategic development and leadership in teaching and assessment.
