Katherine started working at the The Reynolds School in the summer of 2013. Prior to this she worked as a graphic designer and educator in Melbourne, Australia. Her interdisciplinary research combines traditional academic research skills with insights and techniques learned through professional graphic design practice. She has two research tracks: firstly, tracking power relationships past and present through visual evidence, secondly, trends in the use of digital technology in higher education classrooms. Katherine earned her Ph.D. from Swinburne University of Technology in Australia. Her dissertation involved an interdisciplinary graphic design and political science history that incorporated more than 200 historical artifacts and more than 1000 illustrations.
