I am an experienced editor of scientific journals and writer of scientific/medical material with 10 years’ experience. I also have several years of experience as a research assistant in a virology laboratory. I have a Masters degree in Science Communication, a BSc (hons) in Biomedical Science, and a certificate in Promoting Public Health, all gained from UK universities. My main areas of expertise and experience are public health, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, influenza, cytomegalovirus, vaccines, hypertension, schizophrenia and depression. I have written and edited a wide variety of materials including scientific papers, patient information leaflets, symposia/slide materials, training materials for physicians and sales representatives, conference abstracts, conference posters and conference reports. I am used to working to different style guides, and with authors who are non-native English speakers, editing for both style and sense. I am used to working to tight publication deadlines, and have a flexible approach to working.
