I am currently working as a PhD student at the EQTIS research group (Empirical and Quantitative Translation and Interpreting Studies), a part of Ghent University's Department of Translation, Interpreting, and Communication. For the research project titled 'On the cognitive side of translation and interpreting: Process, performance, and product', I am working on a series of empirical studies under the supervision of Prof. dr. Evy Woumans and Prof. dr. Bart Defrancq. In these studies, we aim to attain a better understanding of the translation and interpreting processes by means of quantitative research methods such as lexical decision tasks, eye-tracking and keylogging, and EEG scans.
As far as my education goes, I obtained a BA in Applied Languages (Dutch, English, Spanish) from Ghent University in 2019 and went on to study at KU Leuven's Antwerp campus, where I graduated with an MA in Translation (Dutch, English, Spanish) in 2020. I then went on to pursue an MA in Literary Studies, an interuniversity programme from which I graduated in 2021. At present, I am also enrolled in a number of courses of Ghent University's BA in Psychology.
