Dr Katy Proctor Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

Lecturer in Criminology and Policing
Katy Proctor has taught undergraduate criminology and policing at Glasgow Caledonian University since 2015. Her doctoral thesis was entitled ‘Stalking in Scotland; A Feminist Analysis’. Having worked within the violence against women sector for ten years supporting women, young people and children who have suffered GBV, Katy is keen for her research to be used to benefit the victims of GBV and the organisations supporting them. She has been proactive in delivering her own research informed training to over 400 professionals in Scotland on ‘Understanding the Dynamics of Stalking’ including how to support those who are victimised. This led to Katy receiving a commendation for research impact and knowledge dissemination by the Scottish Graduate School for Social Science in 2018. Her research comes from a victim centred and feminist perspective.
