Dr. Katz's research and clinical interests focus on mindfulness and contemplative practices as informed by Buddhist thought, family therapy, simulation, and the development of competence in both students and clinicians.?The latter interest has led to her work with Professor Marion Bogo in developing novel approaches to assessment of student and practitioner competence. She was a Senior Investigator with the Mind and Life Summer Research Institute, the Dalai Lama's initiative to bring science and contemplative practice together in developing interventions to ease human suffering and increase knowledge of how mindfulness can be used in that process.
