Biography

After completing a BA in Translation at the Universidad de Antioquia (Colombia) and working as an in-house translator, I gained an MA (2011) and a PhD (2015) in Translation and Intercultural Studies from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili in Tarragona (Spain).

Prior to joining Aston in January 2017, I taught translation at the Universitat Rovira i Virgili and worked as a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of the Free State (South Africa).

My areas of expertise include audiovisual translation and translation technologies. In particular, my research analyses how translation technologies empower users and how the democratization of technology allows these users to become non-professional translators. I explore the production and reception conditions of professional and non-professional subtitles and how non-professional subtitling impacts on professional translation and translator training. Other interests include translation process research and the cognitive exploration of translation production and reception, mainly using eye-tracking technologies.
