Katherine Jenkins is an assistant professor of landscape architecture at The Ohio State University and cofounder of the interdisciplinary design-research group, Present Practice. Her research applies theory, techniques, and media from contemporary art to the analysis and design of landscapes. She has conducted fieldwork in California’s agro-industrial valleys, Utah’s alkaline deserts and Alaska’s Arctic, examining the aesthetics of extensive infrastructure as it responds to unique geologic and atmospheric conditions. Her current work utilizes the inscription of walking as a design instrument for landscape architecture.

Prior to joining the Knowlton School, Katherine taught in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Cornell University. She has an MLA from the University of Virginia and a BA in painting and printmaking from Yale University.
