She completed her undergraduate studies in University College Cork, Ireland and her PhD at the University of California, Berkeley in 2002. She has worked in industry in both Ireland and California. Her main research interest is in particulate soil mechanics. Her research uses discrete element modelling (DEM) as well as experimental techniques including micro-computed tomography (μCT). Catherine has been applying these techniques to look at fundamental sand behaviour, behaviour of reservoir sandstones, internal erosion and interpretation of laboratory tests.
