Kathleen was a Senior Researcher leading on Nesta’s policy and research work in digital education and the collaborative economy. At Nesta, Kathleen researched and written various publications, blogs and articles around social innovation, education, and technology – including the reports Making sense of the UK collaborative economy and Which doctors take up promising ideas: new insights from open data – and presented at a variety of conferences and events, including SXSWedu and the European Urban Knowledge Network.  She managed and edited the Decoding Learning report as well as developed evaluation strategies for Nesta’s Digital Makers programme and its open call grantees. Kathleen joined Nesta in November 2011, initially providing research support on Creative Councils and other programmes in the Innovation Lab.

Prior to Nesta, Kathleen was the researcher for Charles Leadbeater’s book Innovation in Education: Lessons From Pioneers Around the World. She has also worked as a researcher and project developer across a wide range of initiatives in academia, government and the third sector – including Maslaha, the Parliament of Canada, and the University of Ottawa. 

 

Outside of Nesta, Kathleen is a founder and member of the Point People, an experimental organisation that builds and connects networks to make positive change. She holds an MA in World Cities and Urban Life with distinction from Goldsmiths, University of London, and a BA (Hons) in History and Canadian Studies from the University of Ottawa.
