Laura Karvonen

Laura Karvonen has begun working as the event coordinator of the Aalto University School of Science. Laura’s duties include the coordination of the annual Shaking up Tech event. Laura will also arrange different events, from conferences to summer schools, at SCI’s departments.

Laura has wide-ranging expertise in the cultural field, especially in the field of the performing arts. Laura has worked in production, administration and development tasks, for example as a media producer, graphic designer, project manager and production planner and developer.

‘I’m happy to take part in the coordination and development of Shaking up Tech and other similar events. I want to encourage young women to apply for technological fields. I also want to influence the stereotypical attitudes associated with these fields.’

Laura is interested in performing arts, photography and media art as well as a more straightforward take on urban culture. Whenever she has the chance, Laura likes to depart for warmer climes. Laura likes to work with professionals in inspiring work environments where she can develop her expertise and learn new skills. Laura is also passionate about promoting wellbeing at work.
