General Experience

I create embedded and back-of-the-book indexes for academic and trade books in the humanities, working with publishers and directly with authors. 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.

Recent indexes in my specialist areas are listed below; for a full list of my work, please visit my website.
