What clients say

Anurag Srivastava, Ph.D.

“I got to know Santiago through the SWMN group and his inspiring articles on sciembassy.com. I reached out to him on LinkedIn while I was trying to transition into a career as a scientific writer after completing my Ph.D. He was more than willing to help me make the shift from academia to the industry. In our first meeting, I pitched some ideas for articles, and he enthusiastically embraced them.

I initially thought I would gain one more article for my portfolio, but I ended up finding a mentor for life. His constructive criticism and the way he provided feedback not only motivated me to revise my article but also helped me understand what the audience seeks and why it’s essential not to mix anecdotal writing with general content. His suggestions greatly improved my overall writing.

His journey and guidance played a pivotal role in my transition from academia to the industry. I will forever be grateful to Santiago for his mentorship and support.”

Anurag Srivastava, PhD, Content creator



“As a scientific writer, Santiago was an integral part of the LUMICKS marketing team. He created high-quality, engaging scientific content that helped increase the visibility and field authority of the company. The marketing team greatly appreciated Santiago’s content creation, project lead, and ability to train his colleagues.

In addition to his scientific writing skills, Santiago showed great initiative by leading and creating science-unrelated projects, such as the company’s style guide, handbook, and several SOPs. This demonstrated his versatility as a writer and his commitment to producing high-quality content for the company.

Santiago is a team player who was always willing to lend a hand to his colleagues and was a pleasure to work with. His independent nature also allowed him to lead content- and marketing-related projects, which showed his dedication to achieving outstanding results.

In conclusion, Santiago is a reliable and talented content creator and consultant. His passion for writing and attention to detail make him a valuable asset to any team. Clients can be confident in the exceptional quality of work that Santiago will deliver.”

“Santiago proofread my Ph.D. dissertation and gave extremely helpful suggestions about how to make my text more eloquent. It is definitely beneficial that Santiago has a Ph.D. in the life sciences field, so he is also able to give constructive feedback about the scientific content to a certain extent.

If you want to ensure your (Ph.D.) dissertation has an articulate storyline free of spelling and grammar mistakes, I strongly recommend Santiago’s proofreading services.”
