Guidance in (scientific) writing and communication.
Like no other, I know how difficult it can be to structure a research or project in a short time. You want to distinguish main issues from side issues and be in the final report to-the-point in communicating the results. From MBO level 2 I went on to a doctorate in astrophysics at the University of Amsterdam. During this path, I have written hundreds of reports, published 6 scientific articles and presented my findings hundreds of times both informally and formally. In addition, I have been a successful thesis supervisor of 3 bachelor students and 1 master's student. I would like to help you get the best out of yourself with the help of my knowledge and experience. However, I do not want to do this with a leadership mentality, but from an advisory mentality in which we can put together as equals a nice end product that we both support. I can offer concrete support for your research/project in: - Setup and planning - Doing literature study - Quality assurance - Presentation and structure/content - Popularizing the topics with catchy texts - Review with a critical look - Give layout and design input - And much more Do you think I can help you or do you want to know more? I would love to hear from you!
