Laura Parrilla Gomez combines her work as a translator and interpreter in the public and private sector with her post as headteacher in a language school in south of Spain. She graduated from the University of Malaga with a BA in Translation and Interpreting and a PGCE in Modern Languages and continued her training with a Master in Medical Translation and Interpreting. She obtained her PhD with the maximum qualification with a research about community interpreting in the health and social services context. She worked as an interpreter in the UK where she obtained the Diploma in Public Service Interpreting in Health. Over the last ten years she has developed her academic sphere with several publications on the training of translators and interpreters, attending congresses and conferences where she has been able to share her research in the hospital context and her experience in the field of translation and interpreting, collaborating with various organisations such as the London 2012 Olympic Games organising committee or the Canary Islands Ministry of Health in the creation of the multilingual application TRADASSAN. Her doctoral research is one of the few in Spain and internationally that has a corpus of real recordings in the hospital context. She is currently the Headteacher of the Escuela Oficial de Idiomas Sierra Norte and Associate Professor at the Universidad Pablo de Olavide.
