Irene Strasly joined the UNIGE's Faculty of Translation and Interpretation (FTI) in 2013, after obtaining her Master's degree in specialised translation. Here, she is involved in the development of a Swiss Centre for Barrier-Free Communication. As part of this newly created centre, Irene Strasly is currently coordinating the official inclusion of Swiss-French and Swiss-Italian sign languages in the Bachelor of Arts in Multilingual Communication. She also set up the first Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS) for Deaf people who want to work as translators in French and Italian-speaking Switzerland. This program started in January 2022. For these two training projects, she received the Innovation Medal of the University of Geneva in 2021.

Irene Strasly started her PhD in 2017 thanks to a Doc.CH scholarship from the Swiss National Foundation (SNF). Her thesis focuses on the study of accessibility and sign language in the medical field.
