Elena Davitti

Elena Davitti is a Lecturer in Translation Studies at the University of Surrey, Centre for Translation Studies. She holds a PhD in Translation and Intercultural Studies from the University of Manchester and an MA in Conference Interpreting from the University of Bologna (Forlì). Her research focuses on authentic mediated interaction in pedagogical and medical settings analysed through conversation and multimodal analysis. She is currently working on how to systematise a multimodal approach to interpreter-mediated interaction, both face-to-face and delivered through digital technologies, particularly video-mediated through mobile devices. Elena is co-investigator on two European projects, respectively on video-mediated interpreting and interpreter education: AVIDICUS3 (Assessment of Video-Mediated Interpreting in the Criminal Justice Service) and EVIVA (Evaluating the Education of Interpreters and their Clients through Virtual Learning Activities), both led by the University of Surrey.
