I specialize in translation. I am currently completing my PhD in Filipino (Translation) at the University of the Philippines Diliman. I am studying theories in literary and technical translation and have translated a number of aesthetic and technical texts.
I am also a creative writer and an art and literary critic. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Art Studies and Master's Degree in Creative Writing in Filipino. I have won the Palanca, the country’s most prestigious literary competition and published a number of creative and scholarly work.
