After completing her PhD, she spent 12 months as a SNF post-doc fellow at Dublin City University (DCU), Ireland. During her stay, she collaborated with researchers from the Centre for Translation and Textual Studies (CTTS) and the ADAPT Centre.

Over the last years, her research work has mainly focused on defining the role of translation and localisation professionals in the achievement of a more accessible multilingual web for all, as well as the competences and technology needed for such endeavour. Some of her other research interests include the accessibility of translation technologies for people with visual impairments and the use of controlled language to create easy-to-read content on the web.
