Mark is an outstanding editor. He worked with me on a journal article manuscript that became tremendously better thanks to him, both in terms of style and content. His training as a scholar makes him raise challenging questions about structure and lines of argument that go beyond mere copy-editing.
Blog: Migrant Knowledge
Cofounded in 2019 with Swen Steinberg and Andrea Westermann for the GHI Pacific Regional Office at UC Berkeley (GHI PRO), this site supports research done by scholars at the institute and in its research network. (Learn more.)
My role on this site focuses mainly on the blog posts themselves, meaning developmental editing, line-editing, copyediting, and image rights. I also organized the various institutional and project pages in a way that would keep the blog and the network front and center.
