Kat is a doctoral student working broadly in site-specificity and ecocriticism. She is particularly interested in contemporary installations at natural heritage sites as vectors for interdisciplinary and intersectional approaches to climate justice. This research focus was sparked in part by Kat’s tenure as the 2016-17 graduate fellow at Yorkshire Sculpture Park while she completed her master’s with distinction at University of York. Kat has worked in curatorial, archival, and educational capacities at institutions including the National Gallery of Art, the Smithsonian Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, and the Harvard Fine Arts Library. Her writing can be found in The Rutgers Art Review and The Seen Journal.
