BIO & contact


I studied Germanic languages at the KULAK (Catholic University of Leuven Campus Kortrijk) and the KUL and was appointed part-time assistant in English linguistics at the KULAK in 1986. I interrupted my 6-year contract in 1989 to follow an MA course in Modern English Language at University College, London. I received my Ph.D. from the Faculty of Arts at the KULeuven in 1993 and held a post-doctoral research mandate for two years (1993-1995). After working as a Maître de Conférences at the University of Lille III for a year, I was appointed Senior Lecturer of English at the KUBrussel (Catholic University of Brussels) in 1996. In 2001, I took up my current post as Professeur des Universités at Lille III. From 2001 till 2009, I worked in the Applied Languages Department (Langues Etrangères Appliquées, LEA). In 2004, I set up a Master’s in computer-assisted translation and project management (Master en Traduction Spécialisée Multilingue: technologies et gestion de projets) and was course director until 2009. In 2009, the Master TSM was admitted to the network of the European Master’s in Translation (EMT). Since 2009, I have mainly taught in the English Department (UFR LLCE, Angellier).

I am a member of the research group Savoir, Textes, Langage (STL, UMR 8163).
