I am a native English speaker from the U.S.A. with a PhD in Earth Sciences. I have worked for professional editing companies over the last four years and have edited over 100 scientific manuscripts on topics in diverse fields including archaeology, biology, biotechnology, chemistry, engineering, geography, materials science, and physics, among others. I also have over 10 years of experience in academic research and I have published several papers in international journals, so I know how challenging the journal submission process can be. My speciality is in the field of Earth and environmental science and my own research involves aspects of magnetism, materials science, plant biology, microbiology, and chemistry.
