Dr Ash – Genetics and Microbiology Editor
Genetics and Microbiology Editor
Dr. Ash is an experienced editor of research papers, review articles, theses, and dissertations. His research brought him into detailed contact with many different scientific fields and he is pleased to edit in the areas of microbiology (bacteriology and virology), molecular and human genetics, and molecular and cellular biology. For more substantive and content editing, he is an expert in the specific areas of cell-cycle control and cancer, DNA replication and repair, mutagenesis, host-pathogen interactions, inflammation, and innate immunity.
He completed his Ph.D. at Indiana University in Microbiology and Genetics studying the mechanisms of stress-induced mutation and DNA repair in the bacterium Escherichia coli. He then went on to a successful post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard University and the University of Southern California, during which he studied cell cycle checkpoints and DNA damage and repair during post-embryonic development in Caenorhabditis elegans. His last scientific work explored novel innate immune responses and pathogen-sensing mechanisms in relation to inflammatory conditions.
Dr. Ash is an experienced editor for English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) scientists. As an adult learner of several foreign languages, he has insight into some of the specific needs of different ESL writers, and he is especially pleased to work with speakers of Asian and Middle-Eastern languages.
Before completing his doctoral work, Dr. Ash was a professional piano player in theatrical shows in the USA and London and he practices the cello in his spare time. He considers himself lucky to live in an internationally-diverse community where he has opportunities to spend time with people from around the world every day.
