I launched aesteryx.com to streamline the process of getting documents from and to clients after 5 years as a full time editor, first as an in-house editor at a small company in Korea and later as a full time freelance editor. I primarily work with researchers with a native language other than English and have edited thousands of documents (both academic and non-academic) from authors all over the world on a broad range of topics. I partner with a small group of freelance professionals to provide translation services and editing on topics I am unfamiliar with.
My educational background lies squarely in the life science field. I received my bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from the University of Cincinnati, followed by a master’s degree in physiology and biophysics from Wright State University. My professional experience is relatively diverse. In addition to academic research, I have worked as a study director in the life sciences industry, an IT consultant and trainer in the technology field and a science teacher in an ESL environment.
As a bibliophile and a serial learner (and forgetter!) of languages, I can fully relate to the difficulties of clear writing and communication, as well as the added burden of attempting to do so in a different language. My goal is to ensure your content can be easily understood by readers no matter the topic.
