I have over four years of experience in a research lab, where I was responsible for designing, implementing and detailing the results of numerous experiments on soft matter systems. My responsibilities included submitting detailed weekly reports regarding data acquisition procedures, the interpretation and explanation of results and diagrams, and suggestions for improving future experiments. Further, I conducted extensive online and library research of journal articles and communications regarding literature pertinent to my project.

I can provide comprehensive editorial work on both technical and non-technical documents. This includes spelling and grammatical corrections, as well as stylistic suggestions. With respect to scientific papers, I can provide the above mentioned prose analysis, in addition to commentary on the quality and placement of figures, including figures, tables and graphs. My experience in this area includes contributing to the writing of a journal level paper, under the supervision of senior level scientists in the lab I worked.
Rest assured, in addition to my lab research, the coursework leading to my degree in physics exposed me to a breadth of technical terms and standards, and I'm very comfortable reading and writing on all topics related to physical science.
My programming repertoire includes four years working with Interactive Data Language (IDL), which I used extensively to obtain and analyze data from the experiments I set up. This included work on existing programs used to track particles, as well as several novel scripts that I wrote to compensate for unwanted motion in our particle samples. Further, I had the opportunity to use C++ to write simple embedded software applications for digital circuits.
Finally, I am well versed in Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint. I can provide spread sheet analysis, presentation editing, and assistance with word processor use. I've accumulated this knowledge through over ten years of Microsoft Office usage, and I am willing...
