I’m a translator, educator and academic working as an Associate Professor in Translation Studies at Warsaw University’s Institute of English Studies.

My research and teaching aim to bring improvements to translation practice and translator training with insights from social constructivism, positive psychology and blended learning.

I incorporate authentic, real-world projects into my teaching so my students can reach out to real people in the world, engage in genuine translation work, and achieve goals they might not be able to achieve unassisted.

 

I’m a member of the European Society for Translation Studies and the Polish Book Translators’ Association.

I live with my wife and our two sons in Warsaw, Poland.

If you’re interested in collaborating on research or educational projects please drop me a line or connect with me on Academia.edu.
