Koen Kerremans obtained his Master's degree in Germanic Philology (Dutch-English) at Universiteit Antwerpen in 2001, his Master's degree in Language Sciences - with a major in computational linguistics - at Universiteit Gent in 2002 and his PhD degree in Applied Linguistics at Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 2014. In his research, several topics pertaining to translation and communication in specialised registers are addressed: e.g. studies of language use in specialised (mono-/multilingual) communicative contexts, specialised translation, terminology and terminological resources (mainly for translators/interpreters) as well as the use of technologies in translation and in other contexts of multilingual communication. His research has been published as peer-reviewed articles in international scientific journals, as book chapters or as conference papers. He currently holds a position as a post-doctoral research and teaching assistant at the department of Applied Linguistics (Faculty of Arts and Philosophy) of Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) where he teaches courses on research methodologies in applied linguistics, terminology and special languages, technical and scientific translation (English-Dutch), Dutch proficiency and software localisation. At VUB, Koen Kerremans is the programme and work placement coordinator of the Master of Translation.
