I am a proof-reader and editor of several years' experience, with particular expertise in proofing PhD and Masters theses. I offer competitive rates; fast turnaround speeds; a wealth of interdisciplinary knowledge; fluency in Latin; and a thorough understanding of grammar, spelling, punctuation, usage and style.
I have previously proof-read dissertations in Performance Studies, Philosophy, English, Classics, Ancient History, Theatre Studies, Linguistics, Cultural Studies and Anthropology. I was also an editor on the online journal Philament at the University of Sydney for three years, so have considerable experience working with academic authors to refine, develop and best communicate their ideas.
"Robin has worked for me in the capacity of editor and proof-reader . As an editor he brings his keen intelligence to the work and is expert in judging the level of edit required . I always asked Robin for an enhanced level of edit which always enriched my own work without my voice being lost in the process. He is an expert in this regard. His understanding of complex ideas is always beautifully expressed through his nuanced edits. His proof reading is meticulous. Nothing escapes him!" - Kristine Landon-Smith, MPhil candidate, University of East London.
"Robin is a highly experienced and expert editor and proofreader with amazing attention to detail, knowledge of variations in style and a solid grasp of a range of subjects across the Arts and Sciences. Amongst other assignments, Robin provided key proofreading for my PhD thesis which covered Linguistics and Ethnomusicology, suggesting invaluable corrections and improvements in punctuation, grammar, usage, suitable vocabulary and overall structure. And he is mighty quick at it too!" - Mahesh Radhakrishnan, PhD candidate, Macquarie University
