What Does Mel Do with Her Time?

Melody Kadenko is the Program Director for several research areas.  They include (but are not limited to):   GENI, Sampa, Digital StudyHall, Quantum Computing, Security, HCI, Theory, and Programming Systems.  Responsibilities include obtaining research/development grants and contracts, managing on-going research projects, and not arguing with her boss.  Prior to moving to the Northwest in Fall 1992, she lived in Illinois and was employed at the University of Illinois, Department of Civil Engineering, while going to school. Her position at the Civil Engineering Department was Student Societies Coordinator for five student societies.  She finished her degree at the University of Washington in the area of International Development, specializing in Soviet/post-Soviet studies.  During her off-time, she teaches English to Ukrainian families, plays lots of euchre (because everyone from the Midwest is expected to do this), drinks lots of espresso, does the hiking / camping / kayaking-in-the-Northwest thing (although shopping is fun too), hangs at the dance studio, and does ballroom competitions.  She also is the webmaster for Lydi’s dance studio.  She taught at the Refugee Women's Alliance. She makes frequent trips to Illinois to visit friends and family. She also racks up many frequent flier miles through travels around the world.
