Dr Greenhill has been developing an area of research around Volunteer Crowd Sourcing, Smart Cities and Future Technology and Innovation through Creative Science Prototyping. She is running a specialist workshop on the Creative Science Prototyping theme at The Academy of Management Conference in Miami 2013, along with Dr Gary Graham Leeds Uni and Prof Vic Callaghan Uni of Essex.
The workshop is designed to present and extend the existing work as well as to build our research network (NEMODE as well build international contacts) and strengthen contacts and Management research in America and across the globe. Furthermore the workshop will assist to galvanise the academic and practitioner interest which will then be reflected in a forthcoming special issue in the Journal Research Policy (the 4* ABS Journal).
As background to existing work she is editing two special issues in Futures (available online) as well as Technology Forecasting and Social Change (forthcoming).
She also has established professional associations with MIT, Duke Uni and Intel at the AoM Conference.
