Biography

I am a Marie Skłodowska Curie fellow within the EDGE MSCA COFUND project at the ADAPT Centre in Dublin City University. In my project I investigate how we can use Machine Translation to help non-native speakers of English to publish their research in English. I graduated in English Philology at the University of Zaragoza (2004) and then moved to Barcelona to continue studying. There, I graduated in Translation and Interpretation (German, English, Spanish) (2006), and Linguistics and Technological Applications (2007). After working in the translation industry for a few years and as a part-time researcher in linguistic infrastructure projects, I was granted a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher fellowship in 2011. As a result of that I relocated to Norway to pursue my PhD in Computational Linguistics at the University of Bergen. There, I also worked as a researcher in linguistic infrastructure projects. In 2015 I was granted a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher fellowship and relocated to Spain to work in a translation company researching the impact of Machine Translation in professional translation workflows. I have also been actively involved in the ICT Cost Action PARSEME, both as representative of Spain and as vice-leader of one of its working groups. A detailed list of the projects I have been involved in is available in my personal website. My areas of expertise include: multiword expressions, translation studies, natural language processing, machine translation and human factors in machine translation.
