I have just returned from a sabbatical period working in the translation and localisation industry in the UK, and am now back in DCU full-time as an Associate Professor in the School of Computing at Dublin City University, where I began working in 1991.

I am the Editor for the journal Machine Translation. Please contact me if you would like to submit to the journal.

I am also on the EAMT Committee, since the EAMT-09 conference as President.

Following MT Summit 2011, I became President of the International Association for Machine Translation, from 2011--2013. On 6th September 2013, I handed over to the new President, Alon Lavie, at Machine Translation Summit XIV in Nice.
