I interview women leaders in science and technology about their work, their challenges and their professional development.


  • Ep. 21 - Women in STEM leadership - Dr Melanie Seiler

    13/06/2017 Duración: 24min

    Melanie studied biology at the University of Cologne (Germany). For her Ph.D., based at the University of Bristol, she worked with the critically endangered Sahamalaza sportive lemur in north-west Madagascar, before conducting behavioural research on non-human and human primates at the German Sports University, Cologne. Melanie is the founder of The Female Scientist, a project that aims to raise attention for the work of women in science and thus to help to empower them. In the podcast, we talk about surviving in the rainforest with little or no emergency support and unable to communicate effectively with her team. Something that proved almost deadly not once but twice. She describes how the experience made her stronger and more appreciative of her abilities to overcome adversity.

Never take a no from someone who can't give you a yes.
