About me

Senior lecturer of Translation Studies with a focus on interpreting, Institute for Interpreting and Translation Studies, Department of Swedish Language and Multilingualism at Stockholm University.


On BA-level and MA-level I supervise theses and teach public sector interpreting (PSI), interpreted-mediated conversations, interaction between interpreters and interpreter users (primary parties), theory on interpreting and translation, training interpreting in realistic situations by using role-play or other simulations, as well as pedagogical and didactic perspectives on interpreter training. I have been a teacher of Russian and interpreting at the Swedish Armed Forces Language School in Uppsala.


My research focuses on interaction between interpreters and interpreter users in interpreter-mediated conversations, carried out as role-play. It also analyses how role-play and other simulations are constructed and explores how different types of role-play can be used for practising and testing different skills.

Simulations of situations where interpreted-mediated conversations occur are frequently used in many countries for the purpose of training or testing interpreters, and sometimes also interpreter users (primary parties) - from scripted drill exercises with recorded lines in a language lab to extensive role-play scenarios with professional participants from public healthcare or justice where the interpreters are trained in realistic situations or tested for state authorization.
