Scientific Editing

I began professional scientific editing in February of 2011, initially working for a company that specializes in manuscripts written by non-native English speakers submitting papers to premier American journals.  More recently, I began editing high-profile ($750,000 - $20M/year) grant proposals for the University of Maryland, working for both the College of Computer, Mathematical, & Natural Sciences (CMNS) and the university-wide Division of Research

I have edited over a hundred scientific papers for publication in research journals and more than a dozen noteworthy grant proposals, including several NSF and DOE Early Career Awards, international research and education proposals, and submissions to develop multi-institutional science and technology centers.  In addition to ensuring that the author's work is presented in the most articulate and accessible manner possible, the editing requires technical fluency across nearly every scientific discipline, from physics and astronomy to quantum optics and robotics.
