About me

I really enjoy writing, and think that if work is worth doing, then it is also worth sharing - and in Science, this means publishing. These days, I strive to publish as much of my work as possible - not only because it is necessary for career progression, but also because I feel that as long as a study was done well, then the results should be shared for the advancement of science (no matter how small that advancement may be). I feel strongly that scientific work should be judged on its scientific merit, not on the author’s linguistic capabilities in English. I take great satisfaction in working with other authors to ensure that their findings are communicated effectively. Here I present a selection of articles that I helped to edit, followed by some that I have written. If you want to know more, please check out my CV and my Researchgate profile. More questions?
