Chemistry (general, physical, school, theory), education (primary, secondary), environment (climate change, conservation, wildlife), geography (economic, GIS, human, research), mathematics (general, school), natural history, ornithology, physics (chemical, general, school), politics (British), sciences (academic, general, school), social sciences (cultural studies)
I worked for Pion, an internationally respected publisher of social science, psychology and physics journals, for 32 years until the company was taken over. In 2011, Pion was the Association of American Geographers Publisher of the Year. I am extremely experienced in all aspects of journal publishing, particularly editing. I have a first-class degree in chemistry and a PhD in chemical physics and I also studied advanced mathematics at university. I can edit and proofread both science and social science from school to academic level.
In addition, my passion is natural history and I use InDesign to produce reports about the wildlife of Southampton. Another interest is British politics and I have written manifestos and campaign literature for a political party – a very different skill to academic writing.
