Catherine has been working as a MOLA Senior Geomatician since 2005. As part of a small team, Catherine is involved in the management of spatial data at all stages of the archaeological process, from site work through to digitising, creating ArcGIS projects for analysis, and preparing figures. Catherine is proficient in the use of survey equipment, from GPS kit to laser scanners, and also uses AutoCAD and GIS systems on a daily basis. She is involved in building up a partnership with Bradford University to enable MOLA to provide an archaeomagnetic dating service.

Catherine has carried out 3D metric surveys on several historic buildings, including Knole House in Kent, various sections of the London City Wall and the Old Milk Factory in Bath. These projects involved a variety of 3D survey techniques including laser scanning and using an rEDM (reflectorless total station). As well as carrying out the surveys, she has worked with the resulting 3D data to produce sets of detailed plans and elevations. Catherine gained a BA (Hons) degree in Archaeology at the University of York, and worked as an Archaeologist with MOLA and other archaeological companies from 2000 to 2003.  She worked with MOLA as a Senior Archaeologist carrying out desktop assessments from 2003 until joining Geomatics in 2005.
