As an academic you've got a lot on your plate, I know. 

On top of supervising, teaching, admin and all those meetings, you need to write. Be it high-impact articles or grant applications. In fact, these are the two things that advance your career the most. And your reputation. 

Make an impact in the scientific community, make societal change happen. 


Meet Your Trainer, Coach & Editor

HI! I'M ANNA, PhD.

 

I know both worlds: writing AND science. I am a journalist published in "Scientific American" and other popular science magazines. Before turning to writing I worked as a scientist and obtained a PhD in Chemistry.

 

In the last few years I have helped scientists to get published in journals from "Science", "Nature", "Physical Review Letters", "ACS" and others. 

 

When I'm not at my desk you'll likely find me in a beach volleyball pit or in the woods with my dog Zuza.
