Supervision information

Our research centre invites applications from students looking to pursue a PhD in Translation and Intercultural Studies or a PhD in Interpreting Studies.

Please do get in touch if you would like to discuss a PhD research project proposal which aligns with my own areas of expertise and interest: corpus-based methodologies, audiovisual translation studies, medical and health humanities, media theory and digital culture.
