So this is a very specific query. I'm applying for a scholarship to do research in Switzerland over the summer and I'm most interested in studying conflict interpretation, but I'm having trouble finding specific professor's research focuses. Is there a portal or website where I can look into what professors at ETI study what?

You should look at the ETI Centre for Interpreting in Conflict Zones. On the linked page you will find the names of the staff involved in this project. You could also take a look at this page for further information.

You may also want to take a look at what AIIC has been doing in this area as well as the work being done by Red T, "an initiative dedicated to the protection of translators and interpreters (T&Is) in conflict zones and other adversarial settings."

Best of luck in your endeavors!

This page of the ETU website shows you the main concentrations of the research team there. Basically, they mainly work in three fields: cognitive aspects of interpreting, humanitarian and socio-cultural aspects of interpreting (which is the one that covers the field of interpreting in conflict zones), and virtual learning in interpreter training.

You might want to take some time to explore the rest of the ETI Virtual Institute's website, as they have lots of interesting information for prospective PhD students.

Best of luck!
