I am a Lecturer in Translation Studies in the English Language department at the University of Birmingham. I co-ordinate the campus and distance MAs in Translation Studies within this department and teach a range of courses on translation theory and research methodologies. My current research focuses on the reception of translations in the contemporary book market, transcultural reading practices and translational stylistics. In the past, I have carried out research on gender and language use in the context of translation. I tend to combine a range of methodologies, including corpus linguistics, discourse analysis and interviews.
