Dr Sandrine Peraldi holds a Master’s degree in Language Industry and Specialised Translation as well as a MLitt and a PhD in Theoretical, Descriptive and Automatic Linguistics from Paris Diderot University, with a specialisation in terminology, corpus linguistics and language for specific purposes. Her PhD thesis was aimed at making a large-scale analysis of specialised discourse in organic chemistry with a view to highlighting both the indeterminate nature and the multidimensionality of certain key concepts in the area. As ISIT’s former Research Director over a decade, Dr Peraldi was in charge of developing ISIT’s research strategy and orientations, while fostering international partnerships with renowned research centres (CNRS, LIMSI, INSA de Rouen, etc.) and leading a team of more than 30 researchers. She has also coordinated several EU-funded projects (QUALETRA, TransCert, PICT, AGORA, etc.) and has an extensive expertise in developing successful action research projects, enabling Master students to engage with researchers and industry on research-led projects. Besides, she was Editor-in-chief of the Bulletin du CRATIL, ISIT’s quarterly scientific journal. Dr Peraldi joined UCD School of Languages, Cultures & Linguistics in 2017 with a view to fostering interdisciplinary and innovative corpus-based research projects across the university. She is currently working on a new research project: Doctor-Patient interactions in an Irish context. She lectures and supervises Master & PhD students in the following fields: terminology, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis, machine translation, intercultural communication, translation studies, sentiment analysis.
