Editing, Analysis, & the Writing Process

Academic Editing & Proofreading:

From graduate students to post-docs, we can all use an extra eye to make sure our work is clear, logical, coherent in voice, and correct.

Work that Robin has copy edited has appeared in publications for Edinburgh University Press, University of Texas Libraries, the Council of Library and Information Resources, and others.

She has also written and edited for multiple organizations including, the U.N. Special Rapporteur on Indigenous Rights, International Rescue Committee, Peres Center for Peace, Arizona State University’s Center for Film Media and Popular Culture, and a lot more.

Sample Projects:

Analytic projects are often collaborative and take many forms to serve their range of purpose. Robin’s work is both qualitative and quantitative, but most importantly, it arises from an ideal of improving the world around us.
