Before joining the University of Geneva, Dr. Suciu was a research fellow at the University of Fribourg where he worked on Medical & Digital Humanities projects. In 2013 he was the co-curator of the "Readers at work" (Le Lecteur à l'oeuvre) book exhibition at the Martin Bodmer Foundation in Cologny, Geneva. This exhibition offered an overview of readers' interactions with texts across the ages.
