This page outlines my skills as an educational consultant, author and editor/proofreader. I am available for hire at a negotiable rate depending on the work required, and whether the work might lead to mutually beneficial research output.

In General: I mainly do research at the intersection of Education, Philosophy and Cognitive Science, but I am very adaptable and can work in range of technical and scientific fields if required.
