Professor Jan-Louise Kruger
Professor Jan-Louis Kruger is Head of the Department of Linguistics at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia where he also teaches in AVT. His research interests include studies on the reception and processing of language in multimodal contexts as well as cognitive translation studies. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Audiovisual Translation (JAT), as well as on the advisory boards of a number of audiovisual translation conferences.
His recent projects use eye tracking to investigate the processing of subtitles at different presentation rates and when there is a secondary visual task. He is particularly interested in the processing of text (reading) when it has to compete for cognitive resources with auditory and visual information (such as reading subtitles in film).
