BIO

A graduate of International Relations and Development Studies, Katherine is passionate about protecting our planet and the people living on it. Having witnessed both the incredible devastation and resilience of humanity throughout her travels to over 30 countries, she is driven to share the stories of our world and hopes to bring a critical lens rooted in post-colonial theory and sustainable development towards ethical visual storytelling.


As the Photography Project Manager for Climate Tracker, and a member of the National Press Photographers Association and the Asian American Journalists Association, she will be spending the next year based in East Asia. Most recently, her work has appeared in the GuardianBBC (Gahuza), Forbes, and Vox.
