Melanie Gee MA(Oxon) MSc MSocInd (Adv)

Qualifications

I have degrees in Physics (Oxford University) and Information Management (University of Sheffield). Other qualifications I have picked up along the way include an ALCM diploma in pianoforte and a Certificate in Environmental Conservation. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. 

Professional experience

Before my indexing career, my professional roles have included several years each as a patent examiner, and in academia, latterly in a research centre where I undertook and published literature reviews and qualitative research on health and wellbeing (see my Publications). I also taught and supervised doctoral students. Having an interest in wildlife conservation, I have also worked and volunteered with a local wildlife trust and in ecological records centres.

Indexing

I am an Advanced Professional Member of the Society of Indexers (SI), a tutor for SI online tutorials, and coordinator for its Yorkshire group, organising and running indexers' professional development activities. When I qualified in 2013, I was the joint winner of the SI Betty Moys Award for the most promising newly accredited indexer.

My diverse educational and professional background and interests make me well-placed to index texts in a variety of subject areas (see Indexing subjects for details). 

Sheffield life

I consider myself fortunate to live in the city of Sheffield in the UK. I belong to a friendly community of Sheffield-based indexers, editors and proofreaders: invaluable for peer support. Living within walking distance of the libraries of Sheffield University and the edge of the Peak District, I am well-provided with scholarly and natural inspiration in equal measure.
