Elevate Your Academic Communications

Hi! I'm Louise, the Founder of Academic Relations.


I am a professionally trained English language editor, solutions-focused coach, and digital designer.  I hold a Ph.D. in Medical & Molecular Genetics and have extensive experience working in research laboratories, from advanced materials development to cancer drug design, and as a data consultant and project manager in the university setting.


With over 15 years of experience in academia, I understand the challenges involved and the barriers to success that many academics face. That's why I created Academic Relations—a business dedicated to helping graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty succeed in both communicating their findings with the broader research community and managing relations within their teams.

Editorial Services

Welcome to the dynamic world of academia, where groundbreaking research meets the relentless pursuit of knowledge. As a former academic, I've experienced the highs and lows of this journey firsthand. From the thrill of discovery to the challenge of turning findings into publishable papers, I understand the obstacles you face.

You've poured your heart and soul into your research—countless hours in the lab or library, driven by curiosity and a quest for knowledge. Finally, your findings are ready to be shared with the world. But there's a hurdle: transforming your raw manuscript into a polished masterpiece.


Enter English language editing. With a seasoned professional by your side, your manuscript undergoes a transformation, shedding rough edges to emerge as a polished gem. It's more than just refining language—it's about elevating your research, amplifying its impact, and reaching a broader audience.

English language editing ensures clarity, coherence, and adherence to academic standards, unlocking the full potential of your research. With editorial support from Academic Relations, your journey from idea to publication becomes smoother and more impactful.

You don't have to navigate manuscript preparation alone. Let Academic Relations help your research make a lasting impact in the world of scholarship.

Satisfied Clients

“Transformative  support”
Working with Louise transformed my writing. She offered invaluable insights that enhanced the impact of my research and  perspective. I am deeply appreciative of Louise's dedication and professionalism and thoughtful approach that makes a real difference.

Megan R., MD

“Incredible design work”
The poster Louise designed for our conference was such a time saver! The streamlined text and overall visuals of the final product really showcased our research in a clear and concise way, and it would have taken me a very long time do do so myself. 

David B, PhD

"Significantly improved clarity"
These edits have made a significant difference in the quality of our manuscripts. Louise makes the editing process smooth and efficient. After editing, our manuscripts are easier to read and our findings are more clearly understood.

Christian L, PhD

“Exceptionally insightful”
The way my ability to communicate with my group improved after just one chat with Louise amazed me! She is an incredibly intuitive listener and sees sides to things that I would never have considered. Highly recommend.


Digital Resources: Templates

Templates for presentations and posters along with resources for planning, scheduling, and organizing research projects, experiments, and more! If you find yourself spending more time planning how to plan/write and creating pretty organizational charts than you spend on actual planning (I get it—why do you think I have all these templates?), try starting off with a ready-made resource and give yourself a productivity booster!

Custom Design Services


Prepare your text and figures for presentation.

My custom design services currently cover the design of research posters and presentations. You can order a custom template and input your text and figures yourself or send me the text and figures and I will create your entire poster or presentation for you! It is important to have the text and figures ready before ordering either service so that I know how many figure and text boxes to include. 






Check your university's branding requirements

Many universities have a list of approved colors and fonts for use in posters and presentations to be presented on campus and off-site. I can create you a beautiful poster or slide deck that meets the university's requirements (even if the university has decided to force horrible color combinations on you)—just send me their brand kit and logos.


Get your custom-designed poster or presentation!

I will return the completed design within two weeks. Please ensure that you leave enough time to have a poster printed if you are traveling to a conference. I provide unlimited tweaks to poster designs up until the date of your presentation in case they print weird or you want to rearrange your figures, for example.
