General Experience

I provide embedded and back-of-the-book indexes for academic and trade books in the humanities, specialising in literary criticism, history, cultural studies, women’s, gender and LGBTQ+ studies, and biography. Commissions are also welcome on management and education policy, relating to my professional background.  I was highly commended for the Betty Moys Award for the best newly qualified indexer in 2017.

I speak and read German to a high standard and have a good working knowledge of French and Italian.
