Catherine Swain graduated from the University of Salford with a BEng in Aeronautical Engineering in 2021. Her final year project focused on improving the aerodynamic performance and endurance of long-range unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The project combined Computer Aided Design (CAD) work carried out in SolidWorks, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations completed in ANSYS Fluent, and a number of calculations in MATLAB. This has given Catherine a good background in several types of software.

Catherine joined the QUASAR Group in October 2021 after starting her PhD with the University of Liverpool in July 2021. Her thesis topic focuses on diagnostics for the AWAKE Run 2, and she is also currently involved in diagnostics for the supersonic gas jet based beam profile monitor.
