Senior AI Policy Research & Project Manager
As Senior AI Policy Researcher and Project Manager, Niki supports The Future Society in its mission to advance the global governance of AI. Her particular focus areas are education, civic participation, enterprise adoption of AI, and data governance; and her approach lies primarily on awareness raising, horizon scanning and scenario building.

In her previous role, she worked as Innovation and Policy Manager at Big Innovation Centre, leading the delivery of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Artificial Intelligence (APPG AI), a UK initiative gathering evidence on the economic and socio-ethical impact of AI, and using that to shape policy.
Previous to that, Niki’s experiences include working for a global foundation to bridge the policy implementation gap (Centre for Public Impact – a BCG Foundation), a primary research firm to gather due diligence across industries (Third Bridge), an international think tank to develop projects in youth engagement (Strategy International), an education-focused NGO (Centre for Democracy and Reconciliation in Southeast Europe), and the Embassy of the United States.
