Dr. Thomas Schlegel
Scientist, Editor, Company Founder
Hello and welcome to my Udemy profile,
I am Dr Thomas Schlegel, the founder and head-developer of Winston J. Greene Academic Services and presenter at Udemy. I studied Biology and finished my PhD magna cum laude, before conducting several years of postdoctoral research.
Throughout my academic career, I wrote and published many high impact papers in top journals such as Science Magazine (impact factor ~35) and Current Biology (impact factor ~9.5). In addition to my expertise as a peer reviewer for numerous prestigious journals such as Nature Magazine (impact factor ~42), I currently work as a professional editor for the academic world.
Here at Udemy, I share my knowledge and experience to empower academics like you and to help you to improve your manuscripts, get published quicker, and increase the overall impact of your research.
Ultimately, I want to empower you to become a better academic writer.
