My name is Dr Rachel Finnegan. I am a qualified proofreader and copy-editor with extensive experience in academic editing and editorial training.
I have an academic background in classics and, after studying for two years at the British School at Athens, I worked for 23 years in the Irish higher education system. I was an educational administrator at the Royal Irish Academy (1992 – 1995) and a lecturer in Humanities at Waterford Institute of Technology (1995 – 2014).
I am also a published author of five academic books and numerous peer-reviewed journal articles.
This background has given me a specialised knowledge of grammar, syntax and clarity in academic writing.
