Catherine received a BSc and MSc in biomedical engineering from EPFL, Switzerland. She then moved to Tübingen, Germany, to work with Chris Petkov and Nikos Logothetis at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics. Her doctoral research focused on the neuronal substrates of voice processing in the primate brain. Upon completing her PhD, Catherine moved to London, and from primates to mice, in order to study the perceptual and neuronal substrates of vocal communication in smaller furry animals. Catherine’s postdoctoral work is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the Wellcome Trust, and benefits from the support of Daniel Bendor’s laboratory at UCL’s Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience.
