Kate is Centre Manager and joined the Centre in October 2015. She looks after the day-to-day operations of the Centre including communications, event organisation, operational and strategic planning, and coordinating high level administration across the different Centre nodes. She coordinates the Centre’s Research Training program, events & workshops, internal newsletters, data collection and reporting. She loves working in the Centre’s dynamic and creative environment.
Kate has worked in research support since 2008. Before joining the Centre, she was based in the Creative Industries Faculty at QUT. During that time she supported a cohort of 350 research students and academic supervisors and facilitated the Faculty’s research training program. Prior to QUT, she worked as an English Instructor in Japan for nearly 4 years and has a further 10 years’ experience in service delivery roles. She commenced in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at QUT in 2015 and exited with the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration in 2016 to focus on her role and young family.
At heart she loves helping people and is interested in how robots can help people and in particular, help to monitor, protect and preserve our natural environment. Japan will always be her second home and she can’t wait to visit again with her two sons in tow. When she’s not at work, you’ll find her out in nature, bushwalking, camping and birding.
