Through editing, I enjoy finding the essence of the author’s story or research and extracting it. I look forward to collaborating with you to distill your work into a clear and enjoyable text for the reader while retaining your authentic voice.

I am an experienced freelance authors’ editor, and have specialized in editing scientific text since 2009. I am familiar with the styles and terminology required for a wide range of areas, and quickly adapt to projects that are outside of my main specialties.

With a PhD in chemistry, my own publication record, and experience presenting at conferences, I am able to assist with science writing and communication in many formats. I am available to work on journal articles, books and book chapters, grant reports and applications, conference presentations and abstracts, and more.

I have extensive experience working with scientists who are non-native English speakers, including during an internship at the United Nations in Thailand, and through editing hundreds of documents for authors primarily from Asia.

I am proficient at all levels of copy editing through to developmental or structural editing.
