Suhair is a technology entrepreneur and creative leader. Her work centres on providing funding, connections and thought-leadership in impact-driven work at the intersection of design, culture and future-facing technology.
Suhair is the founder of open-ended design, an incubator for creative technologists, artists, designers and coders working with artificial intelligence (AI).
In 2022, open-ended design launched Technology & Design Lab, a think-tank for ideas and projects at the intersection of tech and creativity.
Prior to this, Suhair spent over a decade at Google, where she worked on early stage product development and strategy across products in machine learning, AI, hybrid realities and search, new digital platforms as well as emerging markets.
She led numerous initiatives which merged cutting edge technologies with education, culture, and environmental sustainability; and she was part of the founding team for Google Arts & Culture, where she led global teams and projects working across the creative industries, art, fashion, media, and cultural institutions.
Suhair is chair of the Board of Trustees of dance choreographer Studio Wayne McGregor, and is on the Board of Trustees for the Design Museum and Sadlers Wells, and on the official advisory committees to the British Library. She is on the jury for the London Design Biennale and the UK’s Museum of the Year Prize.
A graduate of Cornell University and Harvard University, Suhair now lectures on Technology & Spatial Practices in the Masters of Architecture program at Central Saint Martins in London, leading future-thinking in technology, design and values-driven outcomes around sustainability, inclusion, and interdisciplinary innovation.
