I am Professor of Translation Studies at the University of Agder, the first Norwegian institution to offer a dedicated taught postgraduate programme in translation, and a member of the Agder Forum for Translation Studies.
More information on my professional and academic background, including membership of various professional bodies, is available on my personal website.
My research interests include audiovisual translation, the sociology of media translation and the wider interface between multimodality and translation in digital culture.
Having been a Co-Investigator on the AHRC-funded project Genealogies of Knowledge: The Evolution and Contestation of Concepts across Time and Space (2016-2020), I also draw on corpora to study how the meaning of key concepts in scientific discourse is being renegotiated by a range of actors in the public sphere.

I am the author of Audiovisual Translation: Theories, Methods and Issues (Routledge 2014), editor of the Routledge Handbook of Audiovisual Translation (2018), and co-editor on the Routledge Encyclopedia of Citizen Media (2021).
