About me

Rosaria Marraffino

I’ve started my career in an international organisation. The nature of my work has been very diverse. First, as part of CERN’s Communication group, I developed content for the Organization’s heterogeneous internal audience, and then in CERN’s Safety Training section of the Health Safety and Environment (HSE) Unit, where I was responsible for the full safety training portfolio.

I’ve been working as an independent consultant since 2017. I’ve worked for Swiss and International Companies and Organisations, such as Geneva University Hospitals (HUG), Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois (CHUV), University Hospital Zurich (USZ), Institut de Radiophysique (IRA), and the European Spallation Source (ESS).

Since 2019 I am enrolled in the Master of Science in Learning and Teaching Technologies (MALTT) at the Geneva University.
