Susan uses her talents in market research to connect the big picture to the granular details. With this in mind, she has helped design and connect key initiatives to prospective business partners and has successfully driven marketing and communications efforts. Her current focus is on the intersection of healthcare and technology.
Susan entered Columbia University as a pre-med student and shifted her studies to anthropology, where she became interested in the question of how humans represent memory in time and through various mediums. Upon graduating, Susan moved to Tokyo to study Japanese. She returned to New York City to begin her Masters degree in East Asian Cultural Studies at New York University. Still an anthropologist and historian, she remains interested in time and storytelling, particularly around how illnesses are represented, how abnormalities or crises are defined, and how time is relative.
Susan loves dissecting things (like frogs and fish), running in the (light) rain and is obsessed with textures.
