I am a freelance publishing professional providing copy-editing, proofreading and copy-writing services, and I have significant experience in editing non-native English.
In 2012, I graduated from the University of Sheffield with a first class Master's degree in biological sciences, and began my career in publishing services in January 2013. I have editorial experience in a wide range of fields in addition to biological sciences, including medicine, law and humanities. I am comfortable working with a variety of media, such as large multi-author textbooks, public-sector reports and journal articles to name a few. I particularly enjoy both editing for and writing plain/clear English.
When I have my copy-writing hat on, I work mainly on online content, ranging from informative web pages to lifestyle blogs.
