About

After completing my PhD and postdoctoral work in neuroscience and informatics at the University of Edinburgh, I started the Scientific Editing Company which is based in Edinburgh, UK. We specialise in proofreading and editing, mostly for academic research papers, and we deliver workshops on publishing and communications to researchers all around the UK. Interests include: academic publishing, research communications, online research tools, the use of social media in research and data visualisation.
