Kavya Devarakonda, PhD




I work with biomedical researchers in academia and biotech to write and edit grants, manuscripts, conference posters, and other forms of science communication. Here's what my clients have to say.



Hate looking at an empty page? I can work with you to outline and draft sections of your grant or manuscript.



I review and revise documents for clarity and grammar. I also reformat documents (e.g., for submission to different grant mechanisms or journals).



Need someone to bounce ideas off of? Or to provide feedback on a presentation? I have a PhD and 8 years of neuroscience research experience.

About me


     I am a neuroscientist who loves to write. Throughout my early career I paired writing and neuroscience, whether it was working as a copy editor while earning a BS in neurobiology at Georgetown University; editing trainee manuscripts as an NIDDK postbaccalaureate fellow; or authoring multiple reviews and grants while earning my PhD at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Now I use my dual expertise to help others communicate their science. Reach out to see if I can help you!
