Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Catherine Dodds is a Senior Lecturer in Public Policy in Bristol's School for Policy Studies. She has a longstanding interest in the way that notions of responsibility are expressed through HIV prevention interventions and policies. She has extensive qualitative research experience into the interaction between social inequality and HIV prevention need among homosexually active men, and among African migrants to the UK. Catherine has led on the development of key HIV policy and planning frameworks and a national HIV prevention needs assessment of Africans in England. Catherine is recognised internationally for her research and policy experience relating to criminal prosecutions for HIV transmission, and she continues to influence colleagues who deliver services and devise HIV policy in the UK and elsewhere. She is currently interested in work that undertakes a critique of the impact of the biomedicalisation of HIV on policy development and lived experience for those closest to the epidemic.

Catherine comes to Bristol from the School of Interdisciplinary Studies at University of Glasgow where she was a Senior Lecturer in Health and Social Policy. Prior to that she worked for a number of years as an applied social science researcher specialising in community based participatory research with Sigma Research (which is now a part of London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine). She retains an honourary role at LSHTM.
