About me

I'm Kate Green (or 'KG').

I am a PhD researcher at Horizon CDT (University of Nottingham) and I work at the intersection between computer science and health psychology. My research explores how patiens with chronic health conditions come to disclose information about their health on contemporary social media platforms, paying close attention to the role of privacy.

I am the creator of #PrivacyUG, an open and underground class exploring 'what does privacy mean in the post-digital age'? I also co-founded Towards Openness a research driven knowledge base that seeks to provoke conversations and to advise decision makers towards building social and technological infrastructure for connected learning.

In 2017 I was awarded as one of the Internet Society's 25 Under 25 for using the Internet as a tool for good. I have been a fellow of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) since 2016.

My background is in Photography, Open & Connected Learning and community management. Notable projects include George Rodger Archive, Phonar Nation, Game Changers and Horizon OER.

During the autumn (2018) I spent 3 months at the Trust and Technology Initiative, University of Cambridge, as a research intern.
