There’s nothing I love more than getting people excited about science. I’m a confident and engaging public speaker with experience communicating material to and as part of the general media, as well as at academic conferences and in public school classrooms. I can lend my enthusiasm and experience to many aspects of your project’s communication strategy; identifying your target audience, refining your vocabulary, and disseminating your message. We can also work together on your media relations strategy; I can write press releases, coach interviewees, and recommend responsible journalists. I understand how important it is that your findings are communicated with integrity, since we’re all aware that funding depends on political will, and political will depends on public engagement. I’ll ensure that your results make it to the public intact, and that they are never “dumbed-down”.
If you want a scientific story reported responsibly, then look no further. I’m an award-winning writer with an extensive background in science and academia. That means I need to spend significantly less time teaching myself the basics, freeing me to delve deeper or look more broadly – inevitably enhancing the quality of the story. I also implicitly understand my subjects and their everyday, ivory-tower struggles. Plus, I’m determined. My background in research has trained me how to ask questions, deal with frustration, and find answers. So, whether you’re an editor looking for a fresh new writer or a scientist with a story that needs to be told, I’ve got the skills and enthusiasm to far exceed your expectations.
Are you struggling to find the narrative in your research? Do you despise copy-editing your own work? Is your paper in need of some TLC? I can help. Since birth, I’ve been known as exceedingly critical and meticulous. Over the years, I’ve honed my skills to ensure that my criticism is always constructive. Currently, I tutor undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines of science and engineering who need help structuring thesis chapters, copy-editing manuscripts, and improving their vocabularies. Previously, I’ve peer-reviewed manuscripts for publication and edited media content. I can lend my keen eye and passion for semantics and etymology to help you sniff out and improve the problem areas in your work. Whether it’s a deep examination of the structural integrity of a paper or simply ensuring that you don’t embarrass yourself with a misplaced typo, you can benefit from my scrupulous nature.
