About me

I have been a Wikimedian since 2003, contributing as a volunteer to the English and German Wikipedias as well as other WMF projects. I hold degrees in mathematics from the University of Cambridge and the University of Bonn.

My work

I started working for the Foundation's communications team in July 2011 as a contractor, and became a regular employee in May 2012. I am editing and publishing the monthly WMF reports, introduced the separate, translation-friendly Wikimedia Highlights format, worked on the WMF Annual Reports, co-founded and continue to co-edit the Wikimedia Research Newsletter, help curate our official social media feeds and form part of the group that takes care of the Wikimedia blog. My work involves the analysis of quantitative data and other research to understand and address movement communication challenges.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation. Although I am a member of the Legal and Community Advocacy team, I am not a lawyer. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
