Research themes: Communication, media and discourse

Graduated as a Romance philologist in 1991, I successfully defended my PhD in 2002 in linguistics. In 2007 I moved to translation and interpreting studies. My research focusses on interpreting modes and interpreter-mediated forms of interaction in international institutions, in courts and police stations. I also investigate the impact of and interaction of interpreters with new interpreting technologies. My affiliation with CESSMIR stems from the research I carry out on police interpreting, where migration plays an important role.
