Catherine has led and taught undergraduate and master's modules in management accounting and in finance at Oxford Brookes University since 2005. She currently leads Business and Finance, a module which supports, each year, at least four hundred undergraduate students from across the Business School.
In addition to teaching and module leadership, Catherine is supervising undergraduate accounting dissertations linked to the premium end of the UK's car industry and, in 2014-15, has supported students on placement in the aerospace and gas and oil sectors.
In 2010, Catherine wrote case studies based around real companies and relating to the creation of, first, the financial component of business plans in start-ups and, secondly, cash and working capital management techniques in manufacturing and technology companies. These were included in a custom textbook (Accounting for Decision Makers) published by McGraw-Hill.
In 2014, Catherine became a participant in the Oxford Brookes Bite into Entrepreneurship programme to support participation in the Brookes Student Business Plan Competition. She worked with the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) to write multiple choice exam questions for its new syllabus and attended CIMA meetings in Oxford to promote accountants' involvement with new business ventures.
