- London, UK
I am a freelance proofreader with a background in life sciences.
I have undertaken proofreading training through the Publishing Training Centre, and the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (of which I am an Entry-Level Member). My editing and proofreading experience includes work on scientific reports, political newsletters and medical PhD theses.
My specialist subjects include environmental chemistry, toxicology, risk assessment and chemical safety. I hold an MPhil in Ecotoxicology and a BSc in Pure Biology. Before training as a proofreader I worked as a environmental scientist in academia (4 years), government (6 years), and consultancy (5 years). Much of my work has involved scientific report writing, and communicating technical information to a range of audiences, as well as writing scientific software (using Visual Basic for Applications).
In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, interactive fiction, and sailing.
