Katherine earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from Cornell University in 2021, where she received the E. Gorton Davis Travel Fellowship to study coastal landscapes in Northern Norway. She has worked as a research assistant on multiple climate adaptation projects, focusing on coastal retreat and flood-prone communities in both rural and urban regions of New York. In 2019, Katherine served as a summer fellow at The Cultural Landscape Foundation and worked to archive the legacy of landscape architect Cornelia Oberlander. Drawing on a background in creative nonfiction and ecology, she believes writing and making are invaluable design methods. She views design research and landscape architecture as powerful tools for generating equitable, ecological futures for human and nonhuman communities.
