Dr Katrina Morrison
|Biography||I am a part-time Lecturer in Criminology at Edinburgh Napier University where I have been since December 2012. I am also an Associate Director at the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research. I was seconded to the Scottish Prison Service between 2016 and 2018 where I lead a team developing a professional qualification for prison officers. Before joining Napier I was a Research Assistant at the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research at the University of Glasgow, and before then I completed my PhD at the Law School in the University of Edinburgh.
I am a passionate advocate for penal reform and in that capacity also sit as a Board member and Secretary for Howard League Scotland.
|Research Interests||My research interests include Scottish criminal justice, penal change, prison officers and professional learning in criminal justice. My work to date has focused on Scottish criminal justice policy-making with a focus on devolution and penal change, and latterly a greater focus on Scottish imprisonment and especially prison officers, including their learning and development.
I have published in the fields of Scottish criminal justice and policy-making, Scottish penal change, prison officers and prison officer learning and development. I have been a PI and co/PI in projects funded by Carnegie, UKRI, the Scottish Prison Service and the Scottish Government.
|Teaching and Learning||I teach on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in criminology and social sciences, as well as supervising undergraduate and postgraduate dissertations. I am module leader for Penology (3rd year) and Comparative and International Criminology (4th year). I have developed new courses for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, as well as for students taking courses in prison. I also played a central role in the development of a professional qualification for prison officers at the Scottish Prison Service between 2016 and 2018. I was awarded the best lecturer at School of Applied Sciences by the Edinburgh Napier Students Association in 2019.
I am also an external examiner at the University of Strathclyde.
