I joined the University of Leeds as a Visiting Research Fellow in September 2017 after obtaining my Ph.D. from the same university in May 2017. Before my Ph.D., I worked for over a decade as an interpreter, sworn translator, and lexicographer. I co-edited the Dutch<>Arabic Dictionary Arabisch-Nederlands Woordenboek and the Oxford English<>Arabic Dictionary.


  • Researcher in Intercultural communication/interpreting
  • Working on a monograph titled
  • Tutor of Arabic in unpaid capacity

Research interests

I am interested in and research communication in interpreter-mediated encounters in immigration settings. I focus on how interlocutors make sense during such encounters and thereby investigate the sense-making processes constituting communication. I specialize in complementing the investigation by deploying an ethnographic tool (semi-structured interviews). In my forthcoming book titled Interpreting as Sense-making: a linguistic-ethnographic case-study, I present an improved approach to studying interpreter-mediated encoutners.
