Staff portrait: Susan Stilling

Susan Stilling is research supporter at the Department and is affiliated with the Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms.

How long have you been employed at the Department of Economics and Business?
I started at ASB, Fuglesangs Allé, in 1994. Then I moved with the ASB Economics Department first to Prismet and then to Hermodsvej. Now I am back where I started - at Fuglesangs Allé.

What is your background?
I have a 'korrespondenteksamen' in German and Spanish and a BA in English. I have never used my German or Spanish though. Before my present job I worked as secretary to the research director at the National Environmental Research Institute at Kalø. It was a very nice place and a very interesting job, but with a baby daughter the distance became a problem. So in 1994 I switched to ASB.

What are your main tasks at the Department?
I am secretary to the Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms. Besides that I give research support to a number of VIPs and PhD students: proofreading, travel planning, travel settlements, organizing workshops and conferences, project administration, updating websites and a million other things.

Which job tasks have occupied you the most the past weeks?
During the first 6 months this year I was spending a lot of my time organizing the 2013 ESPE Conference in June in Aarhus. So after my summer holidays I have been busy working my way through the piles on my desk. Besides - I just moved from building 2621 to building 2632.

What do you do when you are not at work?
I spend a lot of time with my family and friends, I walk my dog every day, and I like books and films.
