I’m Melanie Nelson, a project manager and data geek with a PhD in bioscience and a long-standing interest in productivity. I’m currently a project manager at a scientific software company. Before that, I was an independent contractor and consultant, and before that I was a group leader in scientific informatics at a midsize biotechnology company. I’ve also been a contractor at a large contracting/consulting firm, a scientist, a database architect, and a department head at a small biotechnology company.
This is a site about management, productivity, science, software… and the intersection of all those things. For a while, I wrote column for Chronicle Vitae. You can find those articles via my Vitae profile.
I have a lot of other interests that I don’t write about (much) here:
- I also write children’s books.
- I run a tiny indie publishing company that focuses on short writing.
- I love to travel and I finally made a website where I can write about my travels.
