2014 – Chinese Postdoctoral Certificate, Nanjing Agricultural University, China
2009 – PhD Chemistry, University of Manchester, UK
2004 – MChem Chemistry with First Class Honours, University of Edinburgh, UK
Andrew Hagan obtained his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Manchester in 2009, for his research into the chemical modification of a complex peptide antibiotic in order to prepare more active analogues and better understand the mode of antibacterial action. Between 2009 and 2011, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Leipzig, developing new assays for the detection of proteins of biomedical interest. From 2012 to 2014, he worked as a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in glycomics at Nanjing Agricultural University, establishing novel methods for the analysis of glycoproteins of medical relevance.
Alongside his research work, Andrew has over ten years of experience in writing and editing scientific material for publication. He has been working as a freelance scientific editor and writer since 2011, editing manuscripts for several peer-reviewed chemistry journals as well as various universities, academic editing companies, and private clients. He has edited over 350 journal articles across a wide range of topics and endeavors to help ESL authors publish their work to an international audience.
During his time in academia, he also authored several articles in Analytical Chemistry, Protein & Peptide Letters, and Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry.

Pam Thompson received a DPhil in molecular genetics for her work characterizing a model for the human genetic disorder of copper processing, Menkes disease. After achieving her DPhil, Dr Thompson pursued a career in medical research and has authored 18 journal papers to date.
Recent publications include ‘The 9p21.3 risk of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia is explained by a rare high-impact variant in CDKN2A’, published in Scientific Reports (2014; 14;5:15065); ‘The extended MHC genetic variation in childhood ALL risk’, an invited review, in Frontiers in Oncology (2013; DOI: 10.3389/fonc.2013.00300); and ‘Evidence of population level differences in meiotic recombination rate at an MHC class II hotspot in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia suggests a role in genetic susceptibility’, in PLOS ONE (2014; 9(6). DOI: 1371/journal.pone.0100480), for which she was senior and corresponding author. Dr Thompson’s other co-authored publications have been published in prestigious journals including Science, Blood, Genomics, and Protein Science.
Dr Thompson has six years of experience as a scientific editor and has edited hundreds of papers, mainly for authors whose first language is not English.

1992 – PhD Physics/Mathematics, University of Oxford, UK
1989 – BSc Physics, University of Edinburgh, UK
Jonathan Kobine has worked in the UK university sector as both a researcher and a lecturer. He is an expert in the physics and mathematics of fluid dynamics applied to engineering and physical science. His editorial experience ranges over journal papers, dissertations, conference proceedings, and book chapters.
During twenty-five years of scientific research, Dr Kobine has authored or co-authored several papers published in leading journals, including ‘The removal of food fat based soils during the washing of fabrics’, in Chemical Engineering Research and Design (2013; 91, 1602-1613), and ‘Nonlinear resonant characteristics of shallow fluid layers’, in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences (2008; 366, 1331-1346).
He has also published work in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A:Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences Journal of Fluid Mechanics, and Physics of Fluids. Dr Kobine is a former University Research Fellow of the Royal Society, the oldest scientific academy in continuous existence.
