Through my experience as a research librarian in crown research institutes and universities, I have developed a good understanding of the conventions and requirements of academic publishing, including referencing and the use of style guides.
I have copy-edited, proofread and formatted research papers, dissertations and theses across a range of disciplines, including environmental sciences and psychology, and contributed to literature reviews and topic summaries for technical advisory groups.
I read widely and enjoy researching new topics. I have experience teaching English to speakers of other languages, and a good understanding of English language usage and grammar and punctuation rules.
I am quick, reliable, calm under pressure and flexible with changes. I take pride in returning excellent work, on time, to meet your requirements.
