About me

Science and language

I grew up in Ireland and English is my native language. After graduating with a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Dundee, Scotland in 1993, I worked as a postdoc for several years first in Germany, then Austria. I have been working as a freelance translator, editor and writer since 2002. Thanks to experience of teaching English, near-native German and some reading up on relevant areas of linguistics, I know the difficulties faced by German-speakers writing in English in detail – and can repair the resulting weaknesses in their texts in a logical and effective way.
