I’m an academic editor and proofreader based in York, UK. I studied Sociology at the University of Portsmouth (2002–5), before receiving an MA and a DPhil in Social and Political Thought from the University of Sussex (2011).
I have been working as a copy-editor and proofreader since 2012. My specialist knowledge and interests are varied. This means I can provide a unique editorial service for people working in a range of disciplines, including philosophy (analytic and continental), critical theory, sociology, psychology and psychoanalysis, politics, literature, art theory, cultural studies, and modern history.
To date, I’ve edited more than 100 books and articles for individual clients and publishers (such as Brill, Oxford University Press, and Historical Materialism). My own research has also appeared in peer-reviewed journals and edited collections. I also have a book forthcoming with Manchester University Press. Working on both sides of the publishing process – as an editor and writer – has given me a practical understanding of academic works and their unique requirements.
So, if you have a journal article that needs to be prepared for a specific publication, or a dissertation that requires proofreading before submission, or a book manuscript that needs to be edited, formatted or refined, please get in touch so we can discuss your project.
