Catherine recently completed an MSc in Psychology with distinction at the University of Gloucestershire, specialising in attention and decision making. She has been involved in several projects researching situational awareness in complex environments and high-pressure situations. She has joined the AAPS CDT to research interactions between different classes of road users and how the introduction of autonomous technologies, driver assistance systems, and ‘smart’ infrastructure may influence these interactions. She is particularly interested in how changes to propulsion systems may impact vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians, and how they interact with vehicles.
Catherines PhD will look at how communication between road users currently takes place and how people, policy and engineering might be changed to facilitate and improve this.

Being part of the AAPS CDT is a fun and rewarding experience. Coming from a background in psychology, I’ve been able to immerse myself in new ideas and apply my experience to address some of the most pressing issues society is facing. It’s great to have the opportunity to work with students and researchers from a variety of disciplines and to benefit from the support and perspectives of the diverse CDT community in shaping my research
