Portrait d'Emilie Wyss

Emilie Wyss

Research and Communication Manager

I began my university education in Humanities, where I learned to appreciate Goethe’s pen and to dive into the mirrors of Dostoyevsky’s soul. I then decided to add a contemporary perspective by completing a Master’s degree in Digital Humanities.

In addition to several experiences that taught me the savoir-vivre of the professional world and the rigor of the administrative field, I added several years in journalism that allowed the publication of hundreds of articles.

During the confusing times following the end of university, I made the choice to look for an ideal job, combining writing, language & digital skills, showing a strong dynamism and satisfying my curiosity.
