I have over 25 years' experience writing, editing — and having success with — academic texts. I am adept at improving readability, flow, syntax, and word choice, at spotting mistakes large and small, and at ensuring that a text meets the highest standards of written English. During my own academic career, I published articles in peer-reviewed journals and edited volumes, and was awarded competitive research grants from the MacArthur Foundation, the Social Science Research Council and the Ford Foundation. My expert English-language academic editing will help improve the succes rate of your articles submitted for publication, research proposals, grant and consulting applications, conference presentations, Ph.D. dissertations, student essays, and university application dossiers. Because I have an academic background, I am able to understand your intended meaning, as well as what your audience expects. I am fluent in Spanish, have extensive experience editing ESL texts, and currently help professors and students in over 20 countries achieve their academic and publishing goals. Through my work with governments, I am also skilled at professional and technical editing. Academic fields: Social Sciences, Economics, Law, Humanities, Education, Business, Public Administration, Arts, and Architecture.
