My career has been balanced across academic editing and academic research (social
sciences). So, I bring to editing my own substantial experience of both researching and
publishing at the highest levels in my field and applying successfully for research funding. I
have held university positions in Australia, Denmark, and Finland. I am currently an Adjunct
Professor at the University of Canberra, in the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research.


Copyediting, proofreading, substantive editing, and advice on manuscripts.

Subject matter experience

Academic, especially social sciences and humanities, and public policy, though I have edited across all fields.

Genre and platform

Research papers and reports, funding applications (e.g. grants, fellowships, awards), and large texts (e.g. books, edited collections, theses).

Specific projects

I have read and advised on over 2000 texts, including for roles at the ANU in staff
development (3 years) and student support (6 years). As a researcher, I am the author/editor
of around 90 academic publications, including eight books and substantial texts (2200+
citations, h-index 24), and I have received around $1.8m in competitive and other research
funding (inc. four nationally competitive grants). Some recent freelance editing projects
