    I’m currently studying for a PhD at the University of Southampton, my project is the study of high temperature superconductors using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and ab initio calculations. In my spare time I read extensively, some of my favourite authors are Oscar Wilde, Jean-Paul Satre and Carlos Castaneda. I also have a strong interest in popular science articles and more recently scientific literacy, I’ve been an avid reader of New Scientist, Physics World and Scientific American for many years now. I have a strong dedication to anything I find challenging and interesting, which propagates through my work as a writer and also as a researcher.  less

    To make it simple, I have a 4 year-long experience in translation & technical writing, a 4-year long experience in teaching and a 6-year long experience in import/export coordination, administration & customer service. In 2005, after working in international environments (I have a degree in Applied Languages & Business) for 4 years in Paris, France, I made the big leap and left Europe for Asia (Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka). First, I worked as a teacher in Malaysa (I have a B.A. in French as a Foreign Language), travelled for a while across India, worked two years as a teacher in Sri Lanka and became a translator for the movie industry namely Bollywood in Mumbai, India. It was unplanned, truly unexpected and very instructive culturally speaking ; in a nutshell, the experience of a lifetime. Back to France since 2009 where I worked first as a teacher and then as a project coordinator, I have been volunteering being a translator for FORUM through the United Nations Volunteer programme. This position helps me to build a real understanding of development issues and improve my skills in translation including identifying and understanding key arguments, building glossaries and developing an eye for detail.  less
