Ute’s Research…

I have a PhD in Romance Philology and worked 7 years as Lecturer and Researcher at the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Zurich. I collaborated on multiple projects in Italy and Switzerland (my past projects).



Although I am no longer working in academia I still maintain professional affiliations with universities and scientific organizations.



Once a Researcher, Always a Researcher…


This is true for me. I’ve done research since I was 20 and I am constantly working on projects and I often work on more than one project at a time. – I guess I am what Emilie Wapnick defines a Multipotentialite.

I share the results of my projects and research in articles, posts and during my workshops and trainings.
