Katherine is a registered Architect pursuing a Master of Arts in Graphic Design Visual Experience. She holds a Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University and BArch from Penn State.

She intends to further explore how structures can be inflected by visuality and vice versa.
