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 am currently taking courses towards obtaining the Professional Editing Standards Certificate at Queen’s University, Canada.
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. You can find my resume here.
