- Waste management

I also edit scientific manuscripts and peer-review journal articles, with many clients in Japan, Korea, and China.

As an engineer and materials scientist, I have an in-depth knowledge of the technical jargon common to most engineering and scientific disciplines, and I am skilled at translating highly complex technical concepts into plain English.

Before starting my business, I worked for over 30 years as a principal engineer, senior program manager, and lead analyst for a large architectural and engineering firm, two research institutes, and the U.S. government. Additionally, I was an Adjunct Associate Professor for 15 years at a state university, where I taught environmental and energy principles to students in the engineering, environmental sciences, agriculture, and waste management programs.

I have written and published extensively and given many conference presentations, and I now have about 100 publications and presentations to my credit. My publications cover a variety of topics, including renewable energy, green buildings, climate change and the environment, waste management, sustainability,...
