After working for a number of years as a book editor, Rachel spent several years studying at Exeter University in the UK, where she achieved a first-class honours degree in Psychology, an MSc in Psychological Research Methods and a PhD.
Rachel first joined us as a freelance editor in 2001, while completing her PhD. After spending a few years as a post-doctoral researcher and then lecturing in psychology, she returned to us in 2010 and focused her career on academic editing. She took on the role of Assistant Chief Editor in 2018, and became co-Chief-Editor in 2020. Unable to leave academia behind completely, she also teaches Psychology at an English-speaking university in Italy, where she is now based. With extensive experience in both academia and publishing, Rachel has an excellent overview of both the client and editor sides of the business.
Outside work, Rachel keeps busy restoring the old olive mill she and her partner recently bought, walking and cycling in the Tuscan countryside and exploring the many treasures of Italy.
