Katherine is Policy and Advocacy Manager for Oxfam's UK Programme. In this role she leads Oxfam's UK policy efforts which focus on inequality, tax, welfare, the green and just economy and the experience of poverty in an unequal society.
Prior to this role she was Research and Policy Advisor for Oxfam's Scotland office. She developed Oxfam's Humankind Index, a measure of Scotland's real prosperity produced through wide ranging community consultation. She also managed Oxfam's Whose Economy? project which asked why, despite decades of economic growth, Scotland's poverty has not been addressed and inequalities have deepened.
Before joining Oxfam, Katherine led the Wise Group's research and policy efforts and developed their social auditing process whereby the organisation accounts for its social, environmental and economic impact.
Katherine has a PhD in political science from the Australian National University and from 2005 to 2008 she was a Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow, where she remains an Honorary Research Fellow.
Katherine is part of the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations' Policy Committee, the Board of Energy Action Scotland and the Board of The Ethical Network.
