She moved to the Netherlands in 1999 to work at the Stichting Restauratie Atelier Limburg (SRAL), Maastricht (the Netherlands) as a painting conservator and is currently the Head of Education at this institution.

Her position entails supervising the practical and research work carried out by post-graduate students from the University of Amsterdam programme for the Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, as well as teaching and lecturing on a variety of subjects, both academic and practical, throughout the two year Master of Arts in Conservation Studies at the University of Amsterdam.

Mellon Foundation / Indian Ministry of Culture Fellowship programme.

Her interests include the structural treatment of both canvas and panel paintings, cleaning polychrome surfaces, filling and retouching systems and varnishing painted surfaces. In addition, Kate held the post of International Council of Museums - Conservation Committee (ICOM-CC) Coordinator for the Working Group Sculpture, Polychromy, and Architectural Decoration, from 2008-2014, and remains active in this organisation as coordinator of the ICOM-CC Education and Training in Conservation Working Group.
