Dr. Karen Fisher
Professor
University of Washington Information School


Dr. Karen E. Fisher is a Professor in the University of Washington Information School and Adjunct Professor of Communication. She teaches and conducts research on how people experience information as part of everyday life, with emphasis on the interpersonal aspects of information behavior, the role of informal social settings in information flow, as well as the broad impacts of information and communication technologies. Her current work asks how ethnic minority youth seek information and use technology on behalf of other people, especially older family members. A second current area involves online dating and the development of instrumental ties, and the information behavior of people in dyadic relationships (romantic, business, creative), especially long-term.
