I completed my PhD in Russian and Slavonic Studies at the University of Sheffield in 2015. My thesis is entitled 'Language Policy and Russian-Titular Bilingualism in Post-Soviet Tatarstan.' Much of my research has involved translating legal documents into English (such as language policies) and working with many academic documents in Russian.

I have written academic journal articles in both Russian and English and translated them into my language pair (see below). I have also worked with quantitative and qualitative reports in Russian and carried out this type of research myself in Tatarstan, RF. I therefore have experience of interviewing in Russian and designing surveys in Russian.

I have translated academic articles pro bono for Russian colleagues as well as for charitable organisations.

I also carry out proofreading work and have edited several PhD theses and scholarly articles.

I worked in Moscow for two years as an EFL teacher after I first graduated in 1994. Since then, I have carried out field trips in the Russian Federation to collect data for my research so I am up-to-date with my Russian cultural awareness as well as with cultural awareness of other nationalities residing in the RF.

In addition, I have continued to keep my French language skills up-to-date and I am more than able to translate from French into English in my specialisms.
