Since moving to Switzerland in 2010, I have worked as a content editor for academic authors. My interdisciplinary background gives me an advantage over many other editors, and allows me to move comfortably between the sciences, the humanities and the social sciences. My focus is always on the story you are trying to tell about your research. I am sensitive to your individual voice, and can help you get your ideas across clearly and effectively in English, whether it is your native tongue or not.
My own academic work has been in the discipline of trauma studies. I earned a Ph.D. from Yale University in 1990, and was a Professor of Humanities at The University of Arizona from 1996-2006, when I relocated to Berlin, and then to Bern, Switzerland. Between 1988-2004, I edited an interdisciplinary, peer-review academic journal, and ran a small press, in addition to holding my University post.
Since 2011, I have edited scientific papers and worked on grants for the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine (ISPM) and, since 2014, for the Institute for Primary Care Medicine (BIHAM). I’ve also worked for the Clinical Trials Unit, and the Department of Maxilla-Facial Surgery. I design courses on scientific writing and teach at the Fachbereichsbibliothek Bühlplatz FBB. Freelance editing jobs have included dissertations and books on international human rights law, criminology, and political economy, works of fiction, and papers in a variety of scientific and medical fields.
