As an editor, I have experience in academic book and journal publishing; academic writing, publication, and job market/tenure portfolio coaching; and non-academic writing and editing. I have a PhD in sociology from the New School for Social Research, with specializations in politics and culture and training in historical-comparative and ethnographic methods, as well as theory, all of which enable me to provide expert editorial feedback in a wide range of social sciences and humanities. I work with authors at different stages of manuscript development and have edited book- and article-length texts for content, structure, accuracy, flow, style, and grammar. In addition to Social Research: An International Quarterly (where I am the managing editor) and Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research (where I am a coeditor and copyeditor/proofreader), the authors I work with have published articles in journals like Social Forces, Europe-Asia Studies, Demography, and the Journal of Curriculum Studies, and books with Palgrave Macmillan and Routledge. I have also worked on several manuscripts for the University of Wisconsin Press as a freelance copyeditor. In addition to substantive and stylistic editing, I format references (including transliterations of sources in various Cyrillic languages and Hebrew) and proofread typeset manuscripts.
