About me

I'm excited to be a part of the Legal and Community Advocacy team this summer as a Legal Intern. I've been a dedicated user of Wikimedia projects for quite some time, but I hope to use this summer to become a more active contributor to the community. I'm interested in exploring the intersections of law, technology, and education.

I completed my undergraduate work at Stanford University and I'm currently a student at Harvard Law School.

My work

In my role, I support the Office of the General Counsel as we address all legal matters related to the Foundation and its projects. For legal and ethical reasons I (as well as the rest of the legal team) can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation and cannot be the attorney for the community or chapters, though the legal team often provides strong support to the community in many ways consistent with the Foundation's goals.

You can read more about our initiatives here and here.
