About

 

I’m Kathryn Greenhill.

I live in Fremantle Western Australia because it’s full of musos and hippies and people living their lives a few degrees away from the mainstream.

PROFESSIONAL
I work as Associate Lecturer in Information Studies at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia.

I often speak, write and facilitate workshops about the impact of emerging technologies on libraries and our users.  I have given over 50 presentations in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the Netherlands in the last three years. My kathryngreenhill.com site lists publications, presentations and professional awards.

PERSONAL
I’m also mum to two boys.  Trying to find balance between their needs, my desire to just hang out with them and my personal and professional interests is exhilarating and exhausting.

I’m passionate about creating community. I read voraciously, keep chickens, grow vegetables, love connecting with people but hate small talk, walk on the beach when I can and try to say “yes” more and more often.
