Worried about hiring a random, anonymous editor who may not be familiar with your content or might become sloppy near the end of a project?

Don’t be. Here, you know who your editor is: me.

You have the benefit of knowing my editing experience (600+ papers edited) and areas of expertise, and can consult with me directly about any questions you may have about your edited project.

Lastly, there’s no questions about security issues that may arise when sending unpublished and confidential works to multiple contract editors.

I provide professional editing services for books/manuscripts in the following fields:

  • Psychology (e.g., spatial cognition, behavior, developmental, clinical (mental illness), social, cultural (and cross-cultural), etc.)
  • Neuroscience (e.g., cognitive neuroscience, computational neuroscience, perception, neurosurgery, drug effects, neurotransmitters, etc.)
  • Human factors and ergonomics (e.g., human error, UI design, mapping, safety, etc.)
  • Computer science (e.g., artificial intelligence, computational linguistics, machine learning, robotics, human–computer interaction, virtual reality, video games, computer vision, etc.)
  • Information and society (e.g., policy, computer science education, privacy, security, etc.)
  • Earth sciences (e.g., seismology, geophysics, oceans, etc.)
  • Nutrition
