I have expertise in the broad range of life science disciplines. My PhD and subsequent postdoctoral research was conducted in the general research area of neurodegeneration and I have in-depth specialist knowledge of the disciplines of neuroscience, anatomy, neuroanatomy and histology. My knowledge base has been consolidated and extended by 5 years working in academic research, and 8 years teaching anatomy and histology to students of medicine, dentistry, biomedical science and podiatry in UK universities. This background enables me to handle the translation of complex clinical and scientific texts with confidence and accuracy.

I currently live in the Creuse department, France.
