Katherine serves as Editor for the Center's Questions for a Resilient Future. She received her BA in anthropology with minors in environmental studies and global health, culture, and society from Emory University, where she worked with Dr. Peter Brown. Before joining the Center, Katherine worked for Yale University's Human Relations Area Files. She holds an editing certificate from the University of Chicago.
Katherine is particularly concerned with the intersection of human and nature's health and wellbeing. She recently collaborated with colleagues to develop a book (forthcoming) on the practices of a good ancestor, with reflections drawn from the Midwestern prairie and her experience as an Arab American. When not at her desk, Katherine can be found volunteering with the Chicago Bird Collision Monitors or sharing her passion for movement and women's health as a Pilates instructor.
