My research focuses on the cognitive process of translation revision, drawing on theories from cognitive psychology, translation process research and reading research. My PhD project, ‘Probing into the Translation Revision Process from Cognitive and Behavioural Perspectives’, triangulates eye tracking, keystroke logging and cue-based retrospection to elicit data, and adopts quantitative and qualitative analyses to gain insights into the cognitive process of human translation revision and post-editing. Before taking up the position as an assistant teaching fellow in Chinese Studies, I worked as a full-time doctoral researcher and part-time Mandarin instructor at School of Modern Languages and Cultures, Durham University. I also act as the external examiner for the School of Languages and Area Studies at Portsmouth University.
