Freelance Science Writer

Having trouble expressing your thoughts correctly? Sick of wading through the bewildering rules of style manuals? Don’t even know what a style manual is? I provide technical writing and copyediting so that you can pay more attention to the substance. I offer clear concise writing that caters to various target audiences.

My educational background includes a B.S. and Ph.D. in Physics. I have years of experience writing and editing technical articles, dissertations, and grant applications. I also review scientific articles for several peer-reviewed international journals — such as Transactions of Nuclear Science and Physics in Medicine in Biology — so I am very familiar with journal requirements.

In addition, I have experience as a freelance science writer for Stanford School of Medicine, Berkeley LabSLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, QT UltrasoundUC San Francisco, TOMA Biosciences, KQED Quest, KQED Science, Berkeley Engineer, and Convey. I am also a science-writing instructor for Berkeley Lab, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, Genentech, and UC Berkeley Extension.

As a former academic scientist and engineer, I can more effectively write and edit your technical materials because I will understand the content. I am also proficient in web design and content management. Hire me to write or edit your:

  • Websites
  • Dissertations
  • Master’s Theses
  • Journal Articles
  • Research Papers
  • Technical Reports
  • Marketing Materials
  • News Features
  • Books
  • CVs & Resumes

Determining the cost of any editing job requires careful consideration of the writing quality, the length of the job, the extent of revision you desire, and your required turnaround time. Similarly, the cost of a writing project varies. Please email me the details of your job at for a free cost estimate.
