Biography

I design, teach and coordinate all of the Spanish units available at The University of Western Australia (UWA) and I launched the new UWA Spanish Major - currently the only one available to students in Western Australia - by implementing an innovative research-driven approach and creating networks among UWA and other international universities, and between UWA and the wider Western Australian (WA) community. 

I also teach and coordinate units of the Master of Translation Studies and I teach units of Italian Studies. 

I have been at UWA since 2011 and my main area of interest is second language teaching and translation.

 

 

Future research

I am interested in the teaching of foreign languages, particularly Italian and Spanish; the use of social media in the foreign language classroom; Translation Studies and applied translation.
