What do I do for your paper?
Think about the rigor you apply to every aspect of study design and analysis, finally culminating in successful publication. And when you finally find time to draft your grant, you’re working against a deadline, coming up for air only to eat or teach. I bring the same intensity to how you communicate your findings. Don’t worry about getting your thoughts exactly right, get the key points down and I can manage the rest. If you haven’t worked with an editor before you may wonder how I do that.
Medical research communication follows a fairly standard formula, whether it’s a manuscript, grant, scientific poster or slide kit. My background is in science and health. I speak the language and understand your audience. In fact, fresh out of grad school I was lead investigator and author for a published study. I’ll treat your work as if it’s my own. (CV to the right includes links to published works which I have authored or co-authored.)
I am writing in first person because that is my business model – a boutique-style, full-service scientific communications consultancy. My clients have come to me almost entirely by referral, and I do not subcontract any work, however large or small the project.
