Dr Kate Smith

Senior Research Fellow, University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom



I am a Senior Research Fellow (Asylum and Migration) in the Just Futures Centre at the University of Huddersfield. Working also as a Practitioner Manager at WomenCentre UK, I have more than 20 years of experience developing collaborative, participatory and creative projects with women and families seeking asylum, refugees and new migrants. My expertise has developed through long-term research and direct professional practice, service delivery and management with migrant and refugee organisations. I am particularly interested in how migration is understood and experienced by women, children and young people.
