Catriona is an archaeologist with a background in buildings archaeology and computational approaches. Her research interests lie in multisensory approaches to studying the past, digital recording methods and collaborative research. Catriona worked on the Listening to the Commons Project funded by the AHRC. The project aimed to recover the soundscape of debate as experienced by women listening through a ventilator in the old House of Commons c. 1800. It was a collaborative project which highlighted the deep history of women’s participation in politics by developing and adapting visual models of the 1834 House of Commons into acoustic models to create contemporary Auralizations (aural reconstructions) of speeches and debate. She is now based at the Centre for Digital Heritage and Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge.
