I teach a number of research-led modules at undergraduate and postgraduate level. My second-year module ties in with my research interests in contemporary women's writing in French, and my final-year module focuses on autobiographical writing, with a tri-partite approach encompassing women's writing, illness writing, and legacies of war. I also teach on the final year undergraduate module in Advanced Translation Skills (French). At postgraduate level I am actively involved in the MA Translation, teaching on a number of modules and working with students on theoretical and practical subjects in the field of Translation Studies. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and was voted Best Lecturer in the Department of Modern Languages by students in the academic years 2011-12 and 2012-13.
