Prior to joining Aston University in April 2020, I worked as a post-doctoral research associate on a large AHRC-funded digital humanities project (Genealogies of Knowledge) based in the Centre for Translation and Intercultural Studies at the University of Manchester. I completed my PhD in Translation Studies at this same institution in 2017, following a BA in French studies at the University of Sheffield and an MA in Translation and Interpreting also at Manchester.
My research explores the role of translation in shaping the production and circulation of knowledge, both in today's global digital culture and historically. I have conducted extensive research into the translation practices of volunteers working within the multilingual Wikipedia, and have also investigated the part played by translators during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries in the evolution and contestation of key concepts (such as democracy, citizenship and statesmanship) inherited from the ancient Greek world. Going forward, I am working to develop innovative digital humanities methods to examine further multilingual knowledge mediation practices in other online and offline contexts.
In previous roles at the University of Manchester and the University of Leicester, I have taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses on translation strategies, audiovisual translation, translation and media culture, and translation theory.
Along with Prof Mona Baker (University of Manchester and Shanghai International Studies University) and Dr Jan Buts (Trinity College Dublin), I am a co-coordinator of the Genealogies of Knowledge Research Network. I am also co-editor of the Routledge Encyclopedia of Citizen Media (forthcoming October 2020).
