Qualifications and experience
I provide English editing and proofreading services of nonfiction documents to creative people who communicate their ideas in writing.
A geophysicist by training, I left academia in 2011, after earning a PhD in earth sciences, and started my own business less than a year later. I’ve been working as an independent editor ever since. My specialties are scientific publications, business communications, and digital content.
