Elisa Casalegno has been a Research and Teaching Assistant at the Translation Technology Department of the Faculty of Translation and Interpreting (FTI) at the University of Geneva since September 2018. Having graduated with a BA in Multilingual Communication in 2015, she went on to complete a Master's degree in Translation Technologies in 2018, both of which she obtained at the FTI. Since November 2019, she has also been working as a coordinator for SuisseTra, a Swiss association that supports the development of translation technology.

In 2021, she joined the team of the transversal course Comprendre le numérique. She has supervised two groups of students who worked on projects in the fields of web accessibility and cyber-security for NGOs.
