I graduated from the University of Cambridge (Modern and Mediaeval Languages: Russian and Spanish) in 2002, and am currently studying towards a degree in chemistry with the Open University. You can find details of the training I undertook in between (short courses, conferences, etc) on the CPD tab of my website here.
I have been working as a translator since 2004, on a freelance basis since 2007. I specialise in the translation of certain types of medical document. I worked full-time until I started my chemistry degree in February 2014.
