Abstract

I hold a Bachelor's and a Master's Degree in Translation of the FTSK Germersheim (Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz), which included an international experience at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Between 04/2017 and 10/2021 I worked as a research assistant on a PhD project, that was successfully finished in July 2021. Now, I am still holding that research assistant's position, starting a habilitation project on Machine Translation.


My research interests are Machine Translation, Collaborative Working, Research on Translation Processes, Statistics and Data Analysis.


I am also a sworn translator for French and Spanish at the Highest Court of Saxony in Dresden.
