Service Description

As a published author of primary scientific articles, review articles and popular science, I merge broad scientific and technological expertise with an excellent command of the English language (technical, literary and colloquial). I can help polish your award or grant application for increased success, ensure your research proposal is both scientifically and linguistically comprehensible, and help your presentations sparkle whether to a scientific, business or lay audience.

I have also written three patents and can help with patent searching and writing. In addition, I can provide science or technology evaluations for investment decisions or for research proposals.
