About me

Photograph of the site owner.Hello there! I am Marieke, an academic editor specialized in improving manuscripts written by authors whose first language is not English. I work on all kinds of texts though, from books written by native speakers to publishers’ websites. I also do corporate and academic research and consulting work, and the occasional translation.

I have a PhD in Political Science and a strong background in urban studies, geography, and the political economy of the Middle East. I obtained my MA from the American University of Beirut (AUB), Lebanon.  I live in my home country The Netherlands and am planning to relocate to Canada as soon as my permanent residency visa gets approved. You can find my resume here.
