Over the past decade, Kate has partnered with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations to help improve collaboration among diverse experts, use technologies to improve internal knowledge sharing, and manage the human aspects of new technology implementation in order to thrive in fast-paced and uncertain contexts.

Before coming to MIT Sloan, Kate worked as a management consultant for Bain & Company and for Health Advances. She received her PhD in organization studies from MIT, her MBA from Harvard University, and her BA from Dartmouth College in biology and psychology.
