I have been a member of the EFA since 2020, when I shifted to full-time freelancing after a career in academia. I specialize in developmental editing and coaching for interdisciplinary scholars. I enjoy working with authors on books, articles, grant applications, and job/tenure/promotion materials. I feel so fortunate to have found the EFA community amidst the Covid-19 pandemic. I’ve enjoyed learning more about the organization through my involvement as the Diversity Initiative’s Welcome Program Co-coordinator and on the Strategic Planning Task Force.
I also continue to pursue my research as an interdisciplinary social scientist – I am particularly interested in global environmental governance, science-policy interfaces, plastics and chemical regulation, and UN negotiations.
