Your Alternative Editor

Hi, I’m a freelance academic proofreader, working predominantly with Italian academics – though in an English-language context. I always try to work in good harmony and dialogue with my clients, offering affordable rates where possible, especially for precarious academics. This, along with my experience – both as a publishing author and as an editor – in HE, is what makes me a good alternative to the more formal proofreading services out there.

I am an alumni of Utrecht University (Netherlands) and the University of Warwick (UK), and a former British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Glasgow (UK). I specialise in gender, memory and Italian studies. I have several years of experience in academic publishing and editing, including as the managing editor of the SAGE journal of Memory Studies, and I have peer reviewed for academic journals and publishing houses both in the UK and Italy, as well as for the British Academy.

For more information (in Italian) about my academic background and expertise, services and rates, please check out my website. On the last page (in English) you’ll find some helpful resources and thought-provoking articles on HE, as well as a few relaxing snapshots from my editing retreat.
