I am an experienced and professionally trained copy-editor and proofreader, specialising in life sciences and biomedical books and journals.
Having worked for over 35 years as a full-time freelance editor, I have edited a huge range of books and journal articles for most of the major STM publishers. I am happy to tackle major reference works, academic titles or small one-off projects.
I am confident in a wide range of subjects, including biochemistry, immunology, psychology, primary health care, genetics, nursing and biology, at various levels from popular to high-level academic.
My qualifications include a BSc degree in Biochemistry and Marine Biology and EMFEC Certificate in Information Technology. I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders.
