Susan works as an Expert in the Transformative Governance team at Demos Helsinki, working on ecosystem-based innovation and collaborative governance. She also acts as an interaction coordinator in the WELGO research project focusing on developing sustainable governance solutions for health crises, drawing on lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic in Finland.


Susan has broad international experience, having studied and worked in Scotland, Hong Kong, France, and England. She has her Master’s in International Public Management and International Political Economy from Sciences Po and the London School of Economics, respectively. Before joining Demos, she worked in the startup and tech sector for two years managing a media product at Slush.


In her free time Susan likes to do singing and songwriting, read and ponder, do miscellaneous sports, and study maths. She feels most at home mindlessly floating around in the sea, or sitting and writing on a rock on her home beach.
