I am a published researcher with an educational background and work history in environmental sciences and public health.My Master's degree is in epidemiology and biostatistics, so I have a strong background in research methods and applied statistical analysis. I have worked independently as a researcher on two World Health Organization grants, and through the University of Nevada on grants for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Nevada Cancer Registry and the U.S. Department of Energy. I have also done some copy-editing for small businesses and non-profits, on projects such as NIH grant proposals and a field guide to birds. I have published original research papers in PLoS One, the International Journal of STD & AIDS, Rural and Remote Health and BMC's Harm Reduction Journal. I also have writing experience in journalism and poetry reviews. I currently copy edit research papers and dissertations for professors and PhD students who speak English as a second language, and I work as a freelance medical writer.
