Suhair Khan is lead at Google Arts and Culture, which has put the collections of 1,800 cultural institutions online.

I work with museums and cultural institutions around the world to bring stories of their collections, artworks, and archives online. My role covers various countries and regions and lots of different types of partners (historical archives, fashion foundations, science museums, design festivals), so thinking creatively about how technology can be used to provide new windows into these incredible worlds whilst being sensitive to context is what I do day to day.
