I completed my first degree, BA Joint Hons French and Spanish, at the University of Kent before completing an MA in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Bath. I stayed in Bath to pursue a PhD entitled ‘An Empirical Investigation into the Effects of Personality on the Performance of French to English Student Translators’. I have mainly published in the area of translation process research, with a special focus on translators’ individual differences, personalities, intuition and emotional intelligence. Prior to joining the School of Languages and Social Sciences in Aston in 2010, I taught translation and interpreting at the University of Salford where I also held the role of Head of French.
