My name is Carolina, I am a second year PhD student from Mexico. With a background in translation and linguistics I first dedicated my research to the translation and linguistic analysis of prepositional constructions in scientific language. I arrived at Queens in 2013, funded by CONACYT (a Mexican governmental institution) for the MA program in translation on the same topic. I then decided to expand my research and continue at PhD level.
My PhD thesis is about how translation is affected by the peculiarities of scientific language in both English and Spanish, and the publishing process of Latin American researchers in International Journals.
