I hold a BA in German and English literature and linguistics (KU Leuven), and an MA degree in Linguistics (KU Leuven). During my PhD research at the same university, I studied the role of gaze in the multimodal processes of turn-taking and feedback production in face-to-face conversations conducted with the aid of an interpreter. The title of my dissertation is "On the role of eye gaze in the coordination of interpreter-mediated interactions: an eye-tracking study". Before my PhD, I worked as a project collaborator on the project VIDEO.DE, a two-year project focusing on a systematic didactic embedding of videos as part of a blended learning program in academic language programs (German) at KU Leuven. Currently, I am working as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department Translation, Interpreting and Communication at Ghent University.
