Kathryn is a European Patent Attorney in the Electronics and Engineering team.
Kathryn was awarded a PhD in Glaciology from the University of Southampton following research with electronics and computer science to design and deploy the first environmental sensor network on a glacier. This involved the design of autonomous, wireless, multi-sensor probes for examining the physical conditions beneath glaciers. This work also involved using a variety of mechanical and technical instrumentation in laboratories and a field work setting. In subsequent post-doctoral positions at British Antarctic Survey and the University of Bristol, she used geophysical techniques (principally ice-penetrating radar) to investigate the properties and dynamics of ice sheets.
Her research has led to multiple publications in journals such as Science and IEEE.
