Jessica Baron

Copy Editor, Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter, Writer

Expert in STEM, medicine, and future tech ethics. Now writer, editor, consultant.

I have 8 years of experience as a writer, editor, and proofreader. I earned a PhD in History and Philosophy of Science from the University of Notre Dame in 2013. My areas of expertise range from health and wellness to future technology, but I have a broad range of knowledge and interests. I’m passionate about creating good content and helping people turn their ideas and drafts into compelling copy.

I have written articles for the Huffington Post, Aeon Magazine, The Daily Beast, and recently became a contributor at Forbes.com. I also have extensive experience with research, interviews, and writing for professional newsletters and websites. I created the website and authored all the content for an annual top 10 list of ethical dilemmas in emerging technologies at reillytop10.com, which has over a quarter of a million readers.

I have edited countless pieces of academic research for a popular audience and teach communication courses. For two years I served as the Managing Editor for a top-tier academic journal and have experience editing and proofreading work by non-native English speakers.
