Writing Instructor

I am a Ph.D. physicist who worked in the field of medical imaging research for 20 years at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. I published over 90 peer-reviewed international journal articles and received research funding through DOD and NIH grants, so I am very familiar with academic technical writing.

Currently, I am a full-time science writer and writing instructor, so I am also familiar with science journalism and communications writing.

As an instructor, I specialize in teaching scientists and engineers how to communicate clearly, concisely, and accurately for all audiences. I regularly teach technical writing workshops and provide one-on-one coaching at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, SLAC National Accelerator Center, and biotechnology companies. And I am happy to develop a specialized course for other employers.

In addition, I teach a 10-week course at the University of California Berkeley Extension, which is an elective for the Certificate Program in Writing and of the Professional Writing Certificate Program.
