An extensive list of research and web development projects is included in her online resume.

For a period of 9 months Mary Trankel contracted to provide full-time information technology research services for an international organization in the education field.

During her term as Webmaster, she created static Web sites using Dreamweaver and text editor programs such as Macromedia HomeSite, developed database systems using Access and Oracle databases, and created dynamic database-driven Web sites using PHP and ColdFusion.
