A literary translator from the Swedish and Russian, my main focus is on the translation of contemporary fiction, drama and non-fiction into English. My translations have been published in Asymptote, Litro Magazine, Image Journal and Swedish Book Review, among others. In 2015, I was awarded the British Centre for Literary Translation?s Emerging Translator mentorship for Russian, working alongside Robert Chandler. I am also an experienced translator of non-literary texts, working with the arts, fashion and marketing in particular.

I have reviewed books for Swedish Book Review, Glasgow Review of Books and European Literature Network, and am also happy to provide readers' reports.

In addition to SELTA, I am also a member of the ETN and an associate member of the TA.
