I gained my PhD in 1997 then worked as a Lecturer in Mental Health for the University of Sheffield, UK from 1998-2011. During that time I coordinated and edited the digital learning content for an online MA in Psychoanalytic Studies, in addition to serving as a peer reviewer for many academic journals while writing and publishing my own research. I then became Honorary Faculty for three years at Sri Lanka International Buddhist Academy, Temple of the Buddha’s Tooth, Kandy, Sri Lanka, from 2011 to 2014, where I also developed e-learning content while ESL editing online learning materials in Buddhist Studies. From 2011-2014 I served as Section Editor for Springer's Encyclopaedia of Psychology and Religion.


I have worked as a freelance academic editor to ESL academic researchers worldwide since 2012, offering both copy editing and substantive editing to ESL academics wishing to publish their work in peer-reviewed journals, as well as editing ESL business and marketing content, website content and digital learning materials. My academic editing specialisms include the broad social sciences; anthropology, sociology, psychology, political science, international relations/ law, and gender studies; as well as areas of the humanities including cultural studies, religious studies, film studies and art history. I also have expertise in many academic referencing and formatting systems including APA, Chicago, Harvard, MLA, OSCOLA and Vancouver.


I have worked with a range of international clients from Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Brazil, Mexico, Turkey, Russia, Sri Lanka and India. I am passionately committed to promoting inclusive international scholarship, and helping ESL writers of all kinds overcome the challenges entailed in writing and getting published in the English language.
