I am currently assistant editor for the business journals Competitiveness Review and the International Journal of Commerce and Management published by Emerald and editor for Competition Forum. I was presented with an award at the 2010 American Society for Competitiveness Conference in the USA for my work in manuscript language editing. I have also worked individually with clients from all parts of the world including India, Saudi Arabia, Columbia, Singapore, Switzerland, and the USA, editing and proofreading not only journal articles but dissertations, handbooks, and book chapters.
I am a professor at Penn State where I teach Business English, English for the Social Sciences, and English for the Humanities and have works published in the fields of American Culture and English Literature.
I work extensively with authors who are non-native English speakers writing in English and help them communicate their ideas while making certain that every sentence is clear, coherent, and precise. I assist authors with development and refinement of their writing and offer suggestions and comments that will help them more fully convey what they wish to communicate. I also ensure that articles and book chapters follow the publishing guidelines and formats required by journals or book publishers.
