Biography

After graduating in modern languages (Portuguese and English) and linguistics at Universidade Federal Fluminense (Brazil), I did an Erasmus Mundus master's degree in language technology at Universidade do Algarve (Portugal) and Université de Franche-Comté (France), with a short stint as a visiting student at the Research Group in Computational Linguistics, University of Wolverhampton (UK). I then moved to the UK to do a PhD on cognitive effort in post-editing of machine translation at Newcastle University. I was appointed as Lecturer in Translation Studies with Technology at Bristol in September 2015.
