Biography

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Interpreting and Technologies at the Centre for Translation Studies at the University of Surrey. 

My current research focuses on exploring both translation/interpreting technologies (the technologies themselves; i.e. their inherent characteristics) and the impact of their use on the process/product and the user(s) of these services.

My research interests also include MT postediting, cooperation between professional translators and subject-matter experts in contemporary translation/postediting workflows, cognitive aspects of the translation process and translation into the second language.

I have worked in projects covering the following areas:

  • Productivity, quality and subject-matter expertise/professional experience in postediting machine translation output compared to professional translation.
  • Impact of recurring errors on the quality of the translation product.
  • Impact of language directionality (L2-L1/L1-L2) on the translation process and product through eye-tracking.
