Kathryn has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Architectural Science) and Masters in Urban and Regional Planning from Curtin University. Kathryn began her tertiary education developing a fascination with modelling and the technological capabilities of architectural software. Within her degree, she spent a semester abroad and undertook a unit, ‘Sociology of the City’ this unit exposed her to prominent planning theories and practitioners, sparking her interest in planning.
Kathryn’s growing frustration within the efficiencies of planning practise and technological development led her to gain an interest in the use of drones as a tool within the profession. In 2017, she was supported to attend the inaugural World of Drones Congress in Brisbane for research purposes. Later that year she submitted her Masters dissertation exploring the intrinsic link between planning practice and technology. Kathryn recently completed a vacation programme at Jacobs as an Undergraduate Transport Planner and currently works as a Graduate Officer at Landcorp.
