Kathryn graduated from Imperial College London in 2016 with a first class Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering. Her final year research project involved investigating the in vivo degradation and surface roughening of zirconia toughened alumina ceramic femoral heads for total hip arthroplasty, for which she was awarded the Institution of Mechanical Engineers prize for the best research project of her year group.
During her time at university, Kathryn also participated in two bespoke design projects for a high profile Paralympic swimmer, who used one of these designs at the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games to win silver. Throughout her final year at university, Kathryn worked part-time at a multi award-winning start-up based in the Royal College of Art’s incubator, Innovation RCA, where she worked in research and development and discovered her interest in intellectual property.
Kathryn joined Kilburn & Strode in September 2016 and is currently working as a technical assistant specialising in Mechanical Engineering.
