Sarah E.

Sarah E. holds a PhD in Neurobiology and has published in such top-tier journals as Science. She has worked in the editing field since 2016 and has edited hundreds of manuscripts and dissertations over the years.

Jesse J.

Jesse J. is an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at major university. He holds degrees in chemistry including a PhD. He did postdoctoral training at with a School of Medicine and joined his current faculty in 2015. He has received over $6.5 million USD in external funding to support his work in materials science, nanotechnology, biotechnology, clinical research, optics, and imaging. He has been cited nearly 8000 times with an i10 index of 55 and h-index of 35; he has multiple publications in Nature and Science series journals and supports a lab of 14 postdocs and PhD students. The professor has received several prestigious awards, including the NIH K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award, the NIH New Innovator Award, the NSF CAREER Award, and Stanford Radiology Alumni of the Year Award. He currently serves on the Editorial Advisory Board of journals at the American Chemical Society and SAGE publishing.

Jan K.

Jan K. has degrees in Computer Science (BS, 1986) and Botany (MS, 1996) with an emphasis on molecular ecology and evolution. Her graduate training included five years of research in seagrass population genetics, followed by 12 years of developmental biology research with Dictyostelium discoidium as the model organism. Lastly, she spent 15 months working with actin, in vivo and in vitro, to conduct cell shape and motility analyses. The majority of her research was microscopy based in combination with molecular biology techniques and biochemical assays. She has seven published papers, most as the first or second author. Since retiring from active research in 2013, she has done academic editing to prepare manuscripts by ESL authors for publication in life and medical science journals. She especially enjoys papers investigating marine or freshwater organisms and agricultural safety and sustainability.

Molly M.

Molly M. holds BS degrees in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and also a Master’s in Business Administration. She is a published author herself and has been editing for AME since 2013. As curious person, she enjoys learning about topics in nearly any area of research. Coming from a household where English was a second language for one parent, she understands the grammatical mistakes that are commonly seen in the writing of ESL learners.

Joey R.

Joey R. holds B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in neuroscience. He is currently a post-doctoral researcher at a top research university where he carries out and routinely publishes neurophysiology and ion channel research.

Carol S.

Carol S. received her BA in Quantitative Psych and Linguistics from Clark University in Massachusetts (known for the Freud-Jung lectures in 1909). She received her MA and PhD in Cognitive Psych, Syntax-Semantics, and Epidemiology from UMichigan-Ann Arbor, where she worked on a two-year project concerning cognition in the language facility. After several years of further study, Carol moved back East to work with several research groups at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (where she wrote and edited postdoctoral manuscripts and large federal grants). She maintained her passion for language acquisition in linguistics when she had the opportunity to do some research assisting.

Kevin S.

Kevin S. is a post-doctoral researcher at a world top 30 university. He specializes in plant genetics and molecular biology and has published in and edited for high impact journals.

Laura S.

Laura S. completed a BS in biology, a PhD in neuroscience, and a postdoctoral fellowship in pharmacology. She has contributed to multiple peer-reviewed publications as an author and co-author. She edits journal articles, grants, dissertations, book chapters, presentations, cover letters, and manuscripts across a wide range of academic disciplines.

Lisa S.

Lisa S. earned her B.S. in molecular biology and her Ph.D. in human genetics. Her doctoral research focused on identifying and characterizing mutations causing cystic fibrosis, and her postdoctoral research examined growth hormone cellular signaling. In addition to authoring papers published in top-tier journals, Lisa has 8 years of experience editing manuscripts and grant proposals written in English by nonnative speakers. She enjoys using her editing skills to ensure that language is not a barrier for publication.

Mark S.

Mark S. has a MS in mechanical engineering emphasizing in robotics and mechatronics and worked as a systems engineer in aircraft control research for NASA. Mark has also worked with biomedical engineering and marine exploration technology as a student and is interested in a broad range of disciplines.

Margaret W.

Margaret W. earned an MS in applied mathematics; she also worked as a research assistant in computational quantum chemistry and cloud chemistry. She has worked in academia and industry on diverse mathematics-based projects, including pure and applied statistics, medical and environmental research, and math and science education. She has attained additional certificates and coursework in writing and editing, risk assessment, and music. For the past fifteen years, she has worked as a writer and editor, specializing in scientific books and papers written in English by nonnative speakers.
