Senior Lecturer in Translation and Interpreting at Macquarie University, Macquarie University

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Translation and Interpreting Program of the Department of Linguistics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. My research interests are primarily in the field of sociolinguistics of interpreting and focus on intersections between gender, language ideologies, language policies, neoliberalism, and intercultural communication. I have authored two monographs, which include "English language ideologies in Korea: Interpreting the past and present" and "Intercultural communication in interpreting: Power and choices".

I have been invited by media to provide expert commentary on translation/interpreting, language learning and Korean language and culture on multiple occasions, the latest of which includes an interview with ABC Mornings with Virginia Trioli and U.S. PBS about "Squid Game" and Korean cultures.
