Katherine is a Visiting Fellow in Media and Illiberalism on the Illiberal Turn project at Loughborough University. With an interdisciplinary background in Anthropology, Katherine completed a PhD in Criminology from the University of Huddersfield. Her thesis examined pathways to radicalisation through a comparative analysis of radical right organisations in Hungary and Great Britain, which used mixed methods to explore questions of recruitment, radicalisation, and identity formation. Katherine’s thesis was awarded the Centre for the Analysis of the Radical Right’s inaugural Cas Mudde Early Career Scholarship Award.
Katherine’s research focuses on pathways to radicalisation and political activism, particularly into the radical right. Her interests lie in radical right organisations, particularly in the area of Central and Eastern Europe, the use of the digital space in radicalisation, and generally in ideas of identity formation and nationalism.
Currently, Katherine is Research Associate on the on the ESRC-funded Illiberal Turn project, where her primary responsibilities involve qualitative data collection, analysis and management.
Katherine is a Doctoral Fellow at the Centre for Analysis of the Radical Right, where she writes about issues in Hungary.
