I have extensive experience in written and oral communication in English. I have lived in the UK and in The Netherlands for several years and, as a researcher, English has always been the main language employed at work. I am the author of over 70 scientific articles published in English language journals and have presented my work extensively in scientific meetings, also in English. I have a long experience in translation, ranging from translations of scientific texts and patents to three published books and one website. My main areas of expertise are the biological and biomedical sciences.
