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.

Diamond Tier prize 2020

I was awarded a Diamond Tier prize in the 2020 Gorilla Grants competition for online behaviour research. This scheme supports postgraduate students and early career researchers conducting experimental research using the Gorilla experiment builder. I won this prize for my MRes summer project, where I developed an online game to analyse responses to changes in system control responses. This prize will fund an expanded version of my pilot study and support me in developing this research for publication.
