Writing. Editing. Workshopping.
Whatever your science communication goals may be, I am here to help.
I have over a decade’s worth of experience writing about science for a variety of audiences. As a neuroscience nerd, I especially love writing about brains. Feel free to explore my portfolio for select writing samples to get a sense of my writing style.

Anytime I’m working on a grant application or formal essay, the first person I think to ask for help in the revision process is Anahita! Whether it is a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, letter of intent, or even a formal email, she is able to give thorough, detailed, and helpful responses in a timely manner. Her expertise in academic writing as well as her interdisciplinary interests make her not only an expert editor, but a very thoughtful one. I’ve always greatly appreciated her advice and editing recommendations and I’m so happy to recommend her to others!

As international student (Latin-American) in a PhD program at the University Texas of Dallas, receiving help to improve my writing skills was undoubtedly invaluable. During that stressful moment of writing a PhD dissertation and modeling spatial data, Anahita Hamidi provided comments to my dissertation to be ready for defense. She supported my writing skills with not only sharing time and providing guidance, but also by sharing her experience and editing skills.

Anahita is an amazing editor. I have worked with her on several projects, and she always provides invaluable input. Not only does she bring a keen eye and a unique interactive approach to editing, her detailed insights and compassion have helped me develop and strengthen an academic voice.

When I was applying to biotech companies I hired Anahita to edit my cover letter. She had insightful suggestions that made the letter cleaner and easier to read. In addition, I’ve also worked with Anahita on editing a scientific manuscript, on which she showed great initiative and ability to effectively communicate the data.
