How can you improve the quality of text and figures in your research paper to increase its impact?
Would you like to increase the chances of your grant application to be successful?
Do you think the figures of your documents convey your messages with maximum impact?

Concise and impactful writing is one of the cornerstones of life-science research. The ability to express a complex idea in a limited number of words, the expressiveness and aesthetic of a figure, will make a huge difference when the time comes to choose between projects or publications of equal excellence. I will improve drafts and help produce high-quality figures, for project designs, grant applications, project reports and research publications.

Document proofreading and editing

I read and analyse the documents you provide. I proofread and improve the language, fixing typos, restructuring sentences, and choosing more adequate words.

Improvement of scientific documents

I improve the impact of scientific texts by making their message(s) clearer, more prominent and easier to grasp. This revision includes improvement of the general structure of the documents, rephrasing to decrease the word count and make each sentence more readable, and suggestions or redrawing of figures.

Scientific assessment of research documents

For research in biology, I offer an in-depth review of the scientific content of grant applications and research publications, to improve their chances of success. This audit includes evaluating the science, finding logical mistakes, statistical errors or unconvincing arguments, and provide suggestions to fix them.
