I am a Lecturer in Translation Studies at the University of Surrey's Centre for Translation Studies (CTS). My background spans audiovisual translation (AVT), interpreting, and post-editing. I hold a PhD in AVT from Queen's University Belfast (QUB) and an MTI in Translation and interpreting from Jilin University.
Before joining Surrey, I was teaching Interpreting and Translation at QUB, and I engaged in freelance work as a translator and interpreter. These experiences have been instrumental in shaping my research direction and pedagogical approach.
I am currently focused on the integration of language technologies in the fields of interpreting and audiovisual translation (AVT), with a keen interest in harnessing these advancements to improve digital accessibility. I am actively investigating innovative ways in which technology can be harnessed to support and improve access for individuals with disabilities, ensuring that digital content is more inclusive and accessible to all audiences.
Areas of specialism
I have teaching experience as a lecturer and previously a teaching assistant in MA Interpreting and MA translation modules. These include Consecutive Interpreting, Simultaneous Interpreting, Public Service Interpreting, Commercial Interpreting, and Translation Workshop (English-Chinese).
