Professional experience

☆ English-language consultant: PrePublication Services

I have had extensive experience (more than 25 years) working as an English-language consultant for Swedish academics, postgraduate students and research scientists with English as a second language. I specialise in editing medical/paramedical English-language manuscripts (scientific articles, theses, etc.) for publication.

I am also an experienced medical writer and project manager. I was employed for more than 20 years by an international medical publishing company based in New Zealand (Adis International Limited, now incorporated in Springer.com). During that time I researched, evaluated and summarised thousands of medical articles in order to write numerous quality comprehensive drug reviews, which were then published in international drug review journals.

While working for Adis, I was also responsible for the technical editing of biomedical manuscripts written by colleagues for publication in international drug review journals. In addition, I have extensive experience in training medical writers/editors.

I was Editor of BioDrugs, an international review journal in the biomedical field, for three years.

☆ Hospital pharmacist

Earlier, I worked for five years as a hospital pharmacist at Christchurch Hospital Pharmacy.

I have relevant tertiary training: a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree from Otago University, Dunedin, New Zealand.
