She has a long history of researching the experiences and needs of vulnerable and 'hard-to-reach' groups including hidden homeless populations, rough sleepers, street sex workers, squatters, people with mental ill health, and gypsies and travellers.
Kesia has authored numerous policy orientated reports and articles in professional journals, as well as papers in peer-reviewed academic journals and edited books.
Kesia's research interests are broadly focused on population group and geographical housing disadvantage and inequalities. More specifically, her interests include
- the housing needs of marginalised groups and those with 'complex needs'
- women and housing
- welfare reform
- neighborhood and housing market change.
