About me

A few years ago I decided to hang up my lab coat and delve into the world of journal publications.  My PhD discipline was in the field of neuroscience, completing it in 2013 in a joint collaboration with the University of Navarra, Spain and the University of Geneva, Switzerland. Since then I have been working as the editorial coordinator for the high impact journal, Journal of Hepatology. I recently left the Journal to pursue my career as a freelance scientific and medical writer. 
Making these career transitions has opened my eyes to view science and medical communications in several perspectives; as the scientist or clinician, as the target journal or society, and of course as the medical writer. By immersing myself in my client's scientific journey I can integrate these perspectives into a cohesive, stimulating and accurate document.   
English is my mother tongue. I am comfortable to write, edit and proofread a variety of clinical and scientific documents. I am consistent, articulate, and thorough in my work, with the principal aim of communicating effective and clear science to a varied audience. 

This list is not exhaustive, my interests in science and my curiosity means that I am keen to take on projects in other scientific fields.

Let me be part of your project. I am happy to offer my services of English language checking, editing, proofreading or writing to your scientific and medical documents or web content. 
We can discuss exactly what I can do for you in relation to your needs, budget, and deadlines. Fees will be determined on the time and extent of work needed on your project. I am completely transparent and will communicate clearly what I can provide to you.
I am also a registered member of the European Medical Writers Association (www.EMWA.org) and have obtained several credits by following their official workshops.
