Robyn Braun, PhD
Academic and Scholarly Writing and Editing
Well, let's see. I've given up on anything but jeans, t-shirts and Converse high tops. A slow day for me is four coffees and I am ravenous at 3 pm. Every day.
I earned my PhD from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada in 2007 and my dissertation won the University's Senate Medal for Outstanding Academic Achievement at the Doctoral Level. It's an actual medal. I'll show it to you some time.
From 2007-2009 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin, Germany where I also held a postdoctoral fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada.
I got myself a gig as Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Alberta. But the teaching's not for me.
It's the reading and the writing that I love.
So that's where you come in. For the past three years I've been working with academics to help them write and edit their dissertations and theses, grant proposals, journal articles, and monographs. I can work across a range of disciplines: I have background training in the humanities, the social sciences and the natural sciences, and I've been working with engineers for over a year.
