In 2013 Kate completed her practice-led PhD in Performance Studies at Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia. Her research, grounded in physical training methodologies and improvisational processes, has steered her practice-led investigation towards cognitive neuroscience, in particular to theories of embodied cognition as a lens through which to view, and refract, the process of making a performance.
