I am interested in how holocene climate varied in the Southern Hemisphere's mid- to high-latitudes. I use sediment cores from fjords and lakes in Patagonia to reconstruct precipitation, temperature, and wind variability.

Stanford University and is advised by Professor Kevin R. Arrigo. Kate's research focuses on the
influence of climate change on phytoplankton bloom dynamics in polar
marine ecosystems. Her methods include oceanographic fieldwork and
satellite remote sensing. Kate has participated in seven polar
expeditions in the Arctic (Chukchi Sea) and Antarctic (Amundsen Sea,
Ross Sea, and Western Antarctic Peninsula) aboard research icebreakers
