Service Description

I am a trained scientific researcher with a PhD in Neuroscience. I have extensive experience in research, data analysis, scientific writing, editing, university level teaching, and workplace mentoring among other skills. With several years of experience in scientific writing and editing I left the laboratory to work freelance on all aspects of scientific communication. Born and educated in the United Kingdom, I am currently living in Canada. This has afforded me the opportunity to become fluent in the different versions of the English language that are used on both sides of the Atlantic.

All of these experiences influence my writing capabilities and allow me to offer you a range of services which include, but are not limited to:

- Academic manuscript writing/editing
- Copy editing
- Proof reading
- Grant writing/editing
- Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) writing
- Report writing
- Essay writing/editing
- Presentation writing

This is not an exhaustive list and I am always willing to take on new projects that will expand my abilities.
