I’m Melanie Nelson, a project manager and data geek with a PhD in bioscience and a long-standing interest in productivity. Up until recently, I was a group leader in scientific informatics at a midsize biotechnology company. Now I am a contractor and consultant providing services in scientific informatics and project management. I’ve been a contractor before, and also 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. I also write a monthly column for Chronicle Vitae. You can find those articles via my Vitae profile.
Since I’m a contractor/consultant now, you can hire me. I work with companies and academics on projects ranging from short discussions about specific management concerns to long-running projects that I manage or otherwise participate in. See more details on my consulting services page.
