Catherine is a third-year graduate student in the history of art and architecture. Her areas of focus include western medieval art and architecture (major field) and American and Ancient Greek art and architecture (minor fields). In addition to her specialization in medieval English church architecture, her wide-ranging interests include neo-medievalism, regional American church design, and the mid-century modern ethos. She has served as a teaching assistant for History of Art I and Egyptian Art.

She holds a B.A. in religious studies with theater studies from Yale University and M.A.L.S. in medieval and early modern European studies from Georgetown University. Her Georgetown master's thesis, Ring-Givers and Romans: The Cultural Roots of Anglo-Saxon Church Architecture, analyzed the cultural factors affecting the design of Anglo-Saxon stone churches. Under the direction of Lisa Reilly she is researching her doctoral dissertation, The Round Church Movement in Twelfth-Century England: Crusaders, Pilgrims, and the Holy Sepulchre.

Catherine is a member of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Medieval Colloquium and serves on the Graduate Advisory Board of The Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures. She hopes to share her research both through publications and through documentary films, and she looks forward to collaborating with colleagues across disciplines to explore the larger cultural issues that defined medieval society.
