I am a native English speaker and obtained PhD in biochemistry from Warwick University in England. In parallel to my research work in biochemistry, I also worked for a publishing house in London to write one-page summaries of pharmaceutical and biotechnological patents. I have lived in France for 15 years and worked as a researcher in French research laboratories (CNRS) for over 7 years. I have been working as a full time French to English translator (mainly for pharmaceutical companies) for over 6 years. I also work as a medical writer in English for French pharmaceutical companies.
