Emmanuelle Orsi Fisher
French IS Director
My name is Emmanuelle Orsi Fisher. I was born in Paris, France. I graduated with a Master of Chemical Engineering from the “École Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques (ENSIC)”, in Nancy, France. In 2001, I attended the “Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan” and obtained the “Agrégation” of physics and chemistry. I taught physics and chemistry at a college level for several years in one of the prestigious and highly selective “Classes Préparatoires aux Grandes Écoles”, before moving to the United States. I have been part of the ISCHS family since 2010, teaching mathematics, physics, and Chemistry in the French program and have been the French program director since 2015. In 2019, I had the honor of being named Knight in the Order of the Academic Palms (« Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques »), a national order bestowed by the French Republic on distinguished academics and teachers for valuable services to universities, education and science.
