I hold a BA in Translation and Interpreting from the University of Granada in Spain. After finishing my degree, I moved to the UK to teach Spanish in a secondary school. Having discovered my passion for translation and language teaching, I went back to Spain to complete a PGCE in English and a Postgraduate Diploma in Audiovisual Translation, and to start my PhD.
While working as a full-time in-house translator in Sheffield, I worked on my PhD in Audiovisual Translation under the supervision of Prof. Frederic Chaume. I started my career as an academic as Lecturer in Translation Technology at London Metropolitan University, in 2007.
I completed my PhD in 2009 and joined Imperial College London in 2011 as Practical Translation Coordinator. I joined the Centre for Translation Studies (CenTraS) at UCL in October 2013.
