Biography

I obtained a first degree in English Studies (BA) from The University of Valladolid (Spain). At this university, I developed an interest for translation and the pedagogy of teaching specialist languages and completed an MA in Specialized English/Spanish Translation in the Centre for Research on Bilingual Terminology, Specialized Translation and Contrastive Analysis (CITTAC).

At UMIST, I did an MSc in Machine Translation at the Centre for Computational Linguistics. This led me to pursue a PhD which investigated the connection between translation, Computer Aided Translation, Free Online Machine Translation, Computer Assisted Language Learning and language teaching/learning. I successfully completed it and, since then, I have disseminated my research findings to professionals and research students both nationally and internationally.

I have more than 20 years experience teaching Spanish in HE. Since 2006 I coordinate the LEAP/UWLP Spanish Programme and the MBChB with European Studies Medical Spanish Programme.
