I am an in-house editor at the German Historical Institute (GHI) in Washington, DC. Here are some of the publications I have edited.

I accompany most of the book manuscripts from their initial submission for peer review (or the initial monograph translation proposal) to the final page proofs. In the case of articles for outside publications, my involvement varies. I sometimes also do translation work (from German into English), usually in the course of my editing tasks.

I also edit a blog at the GHI, History of Knowledge, with Kerstin von der Krone.
