She has been teaching Jewish texts in adult education settings in her community and to high school students in a Jewish after-school program as well as teaching bnot-mitzvah to leyn Megilah and Torah. Shoshana holds a Bsc. in Physics from EPFL and an Msc. in Computational Sciences and Engineering from ETHZ.
