Golnaz Farhat, PhD


Clear and concise writing is essential for effective scientific communication. I provide support for scientists, academics, biotech/pharmaceutical companies, and the medical community to publish their findings, compete for funding, and communicate their research to a variety of audiences. I have worked on documents spanning the life sciences, medical sciences, physics and economics. My specialties include oncology, radiation therapy, cancer biology, medical imaging, medical devices, optics and electrical engineering.

I want to help you maximize the impact of your writing. My services can help you at any stage of your project. If you need substantive editing, I will work with you on the content and organization of your document, improving flow and clarity so your message stands out to the reader. If the structure of your document is solid, I can improve the style and readibility of your writing by removing jargon and excessive wordiness, reducing redundancies, checking word usage, grammar and syntax.  I can also help with project development, research and fact checking. Get in touch to discuss how I can help with your project.
