Dr Catharina Hendrick's professional museum experience includes work as project manager for the 'Silver Sounds' exhibition project at the Naughton Gallery at Queen's University Belfast (which won a Times Higher Award for Excellence in the Arts).  She was consultant for the Naughton Gallery (Queen's University Belfast) to ensure that they were successful in gaining museum accreditation. Catharina was consultant/project manager for the Public Catalogue Foundation's (PCF) photography project of oil paintings in a public collection (Queen's University). She also has experience as Marketing/Press Officer at the Belfast Festival at Queen's (a yearly cultural event with theatre, music, visual arts, talks) and working in a multi-cultural press team. 

She received her MA in Museum Studies and a PhD from the University of Leicester, UK. Catharina's research investigates how collecting new media art affects the museum institutionally. The two regional museums, are innovative and agile organisations where expertise is shared within the organisation and beyond. Best practice is fostered, experimentation is cultivated and staff work in a collaborative and flexible manner so that new media art can be acquired. She is also interested in contemporary art generally as well as organisational culture and organisational structures within the museum.

Since completing her PhD in 2015 Catharina has joined UCL Qatar in 2016 as Lecturer in Museum Studies.
