Specific projects

I have extensive experience in academia and research in Australia and the UK. My eclectic experience in a range of teaching, research and advocacy positions in universities, the public sector and trade unions has given me a great deal of insight in to how to frame research findings in clear, persuasive language which engages readers, markers and policy makers.

In addition to editing I can also tutor academic research and writing skills if you would like help before the writing stage.

Note that I have marked untold thousands of essays, and continue to review articles for journals, as well as regularly edit articles and theses, so I draw on substantial experience to inform my editing. I have a great deal of experience with students and writers who are not native English speakers.

Teaching and research experience at a number of universities in the UK and Australia.

Published academic author and editor, and reviewer of journal articles.My services also include ad hoc assistance when required from my team, which includes a professor and journal editor, and an experienced drafter of policy documents and former legal editor.
