Catherine is interested in utilising the intersecting areas of motor development, physical activity, and health in promoting better outcomes that start in early childhood. She comes from a background of practice, research, and government policy. Prior to joining The Education University of Hong Kong, she served as a Senior Research Advisor in a New Zealand Crown agency, where she focused on using research to inform government policies. She was also a Research Fellow in the University of Waikato in New Zealand, and was an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health in the University of Hong Kong. Catherine practiced paediatric physiotherapy prior to completing her PhD in HKU, and was an International Scholar in the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium in the area of psychomotor therapy.
