About me
Bilingual German and English speaker - German-born British citizen - Long term professional experience

I completed my education with a first-class honours degree (Southampton) and a master's degree in sociology (Edinburgh), and a PhD in healthcare organisation (Manchester). I am a Professional Member of the Medical Sociology Study Group at the British Sociological Association, the British Academy of Management, and the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology.

I worked in a number of academic departments in the UK and held honorary appointments at the National Health Service in England. I have over 8 years experience working in healthcare settings as a research scientist, ethnographic fieldworker, and clinical process evaluator. I have considerable first-hand experience of medical and healthcare systems and procedures, including drafting ethics submissions, research protocols, patient questionnaires, and analysis, as well as an in-depth knowledge of medical and medio-legal reports.

For more than a decade, I have worked as a freelance German-English translator where, due to my background, I have specialised in medical and medico-legal translations. This work has covered a wide variety of texts including, medical, surgical, and pharmacological reports, as well as legal correspondence and judgements in the area of tort law and data protection law.
