Jennifer De Beyer

Dr Jennifer De Beyer 

At the EQUATOR Network in CSM, I get to help researchers communicate their fantastic work to their peers in the most effective way possible! I trained in laboratory research, then worked in academic editing. Now I spend half my time elbow-deep in proposals and manuscripts and the other half training early-career researchers in academic writing skills. It’s my perfect balance of science and words, plus we’re helping people!
