Brief Bio:

Kathleen studied Materials Science at University of Limerick (Ireland). As an undergraduate student Kathleen obtained the UREKA research scholarship funded by Science Foundation Ireland at National Centre for Biomedical Engineering Science (NCBES), NUI Galway (Ireland) where she worked on finite element models of cobalt chromium stents.
She continued her education with an M. Sc. in Molecular Bioengineering at Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC), TU Dresden from 2010-2012 in order to explore bottom-up processing in nature. For her master thesis she investigated the formation and materials aspects of the Diatom Coscinodiscus Wailesii's bioinorganic silica shell wall which has great potential to be exploited for technological applications.
As part of the ENano project, she now works on x-ray focusing multilayer optics at Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology (IWS). Her interests are mesoscopic materials systems and their mechanical, electronic and optical properties.
