Zoe is a Research Fellow at the Centre of Translation Studies. Her main area of work is on the ESRC-funded SMART project, which is investigating how respeaking technology can shape and provide multilingual access. She is also part of the MATRIC project, investigating Machine Translation and Respeaking in Interlingual Communication. She holds an MA in Audiovisual Translation and a PhD in Translation Studies from the University of Roehampton. Her doctoral research explored how respeaking could be introduced into the live event setting in the UK to broaden the access provided.
Zoe has professional experience of respeaking and subtitling. She is on the editorial board for JoSTrans (Journal of Specialised Translation) and is a member of GALMA (Galician Observatory for Media Accessibility), an international research group, which has led to her involvement in a number of accessibility-related projects.
