A native English speaker, I gained a BSc in Physics from the University of London, then a Master’s in Optics at the University of Reading. After working for the Ministry of Defence and several technology companies, I switched career and became a physics teacher. Through my work as Outreach Coordinator in the College of Science at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand), I gained experience and knowledge of a wide range of scientific disciplines, from Astronomy to Zoology.
I provide proofreading or editing for a wide range of scientific material, including essays, books, theses, dissertations, proposals, posters, presentations, journal articles and web pages. I work with documents in Word (using Tracked Changes), PDF and LaTeX (either as .tex files or in Overleaf).
For students submitting Master's or doctoral theses, please note that your principal supervisor will need to approve any provision of copy editing for your thesis or dissertation. This conforms with the guidelines of the Institute of Professional Editors. Examples of the editing level provided are available on request.
Please contact me to discuss how I can help you produce professional, error-free documents.
Sample edits of up to two pages are available free of charge.
