Overview:

Katey is an pākehā interdisciplinary social justice researcher exploring the spaces where law and health interface. Before moving to Auckland from her hometown of Christchurch, Katey studied sociology at the University of Canterbury completing Masters research on the use of ecstasy within the electronic dance music scene. After working as a research assistant for two years in the Centre for Mental Health Research at the University of Auckland, she embarked on her PhD journey which was confirmed in 2010. Katey’s PhD thesis explored the role of forensic psychiatrists when acting as expert witnesses in trials involving the defence of insanity. Katey co-directed the Centre for Mental Health and was a senior research fellow at the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences, University of Auckland, until she joined the School of Law at AUT in 2018. At AUT, Katey leads several research projects, advises on research ethics, teaches on social justice issues, and supervises student research.

Research interests:

Katey has a keen interest in socio-legal studies, and applies approach to examining how mental health law and criminal law work practice. The overall aim of her research is to inform policy, practice and legal reform that improves outcomes for some of the most marginalised people in society. Katey's current research has a strong focus on social justice issues in mental health and addiction, covering various aspects of mental health law, human rights and therapeutic initiatives within the criminal justice system. Katey has lead a Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden funded project on the therapeutic nature of New Zealand's specialist courts. Other research has considered how mental health legislation is operationalised by looking closely into the role of advance directives in mental health, mental health review tribunals, and district inspectors. Within this work, Katey has a strong interesting in considering the implications of the United Nation Convention for the Rights of Persons with Disability in New Zealand. Currently, Katey is leading a Borrin Foundation funded project that aims to re-envisage the criminal justice system to better respond to people with intersecting mental health, addictions and criminal justice histories. She was also recently awarded marsden funding to extend her research focus to working with the service users and the police to improve responses to citizens in mental distress.
