Hi there! My name is Joe and I'm a Community Advocate at the Wikimedia Foundation. I've been an editor on the English Wikipedia (and dabbled in various other Wikimedia projects) since 2006. In real life, I graduated with a BA(Hons.) in Journalism in 2015. I'm originally from Aberdeen, Scotland, but moved to San Francisco in August 2016.
I wrote a dissertation on how Wikipedia reacts to breaking news as part of my degree.
I'm a Community Advocate on the Support and Safety team. Our team helps to empower volunteers within the Wikimedia movement by providing a bridge to the Foundation's work, as well as helping the Foundation work more effectively with communities. I also help to undertake and to present New Readers research.
