Katherine obtained her Ph.D. degree in cognitive psychology from Université Laval in 2019. During her doctoral studies, she examined the mechanisms involved in the resumption of a dynamic task using behavioral, ocular and pupillometric data. As part of her postdoctoral fellowship, Katherine is coordinating a multidisciplinary project involving industrial (Thales Canada), military (Defence Research and Development Canada), and academic partners (Université Laval and Dalhousie University). Specifically, this project aims to identify the optimal configuration of an automated decision support system designed to improve performance in complex work environments. Katherine is also involved in a research project about auditory distraction as well as a project related to the cognitive challenges experienced in the maritime domain.
