I was a student in Aix-Marseille University, where I studied English Language, Literature and Civilization, and specialized in Translation Studies. I obtained a Licence in 2016 and graduated in Research (Master's degree) in 2018.

I researched the two French translations of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. My first dissertation focused on the onomastics of both translations by Francis Ledoux and Daniel Lauzon, while the second focused more specifically on the retranslation by Daniel Lauzon.


Research Interests:

Translation Studies, Fantasy Literature, Stylistic Idiosyncrasies in Translated Texts, Licence and Creativity in Writing and Translation Strategies
