Born in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1986 (currently aged 28), but grew up by the coast 50 miles north of it. Went backpacking after finishing high school in 2005, taking the Trans-Siberian train to Asia, spending half a year there, mainly in Western China, crossing the Himalayas from Tibet to Nepal.
Has contributed to Wikipedia since 2006.
Publication of images
If you're an editor wanting to know what attribution to use when including one of my pictures in a work of yours, I would suggest something like:
- From [image name] by [other image author if applicable] and Mikael Häggström, MD
, by the image or in the reference list. If the license (as given under the "Licensing" section of the image description page) has "share-alike" in its name, then a license description should be included in the attribution as well, such as "released under the Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license".
High resolution versions
The image version of highest resolution is generally found by clicking the "Full resolution" link, located below the image on its description page.
I do journal summarizing in Wikipedia from
- Human Reproduction Update, making summaries in Wikipedia of approximately 80% of its articles.
- Obstetrics and gynecology contents from The New England Journal of Medicine.
I'm a member of the following task force:
I don't have many articles on my watchlist (I think it mostly gives false alarm and sometimes misses when previous edits to the article also were vandalism), but I always check for vandalism in articles before I edit them. I check for deletions of larger amounts of text by looking in the history to see if the size of the article has been generally increasing (at least in the last 50 edits). I think other types of vandalism may be spotted later by readers. Still, I also check for recent vandalism by checking if the last edits have been made by IP addresses or by red linked or obviously improvised usernames, as well as their edit summaries. So, you may assume that an article is fairly non-vandalized in those aspects at the moment you see me in the edit history.

Edit summary terminology
In my edit summaries, + means "addition of ..." and – (a dash) means "removal of ...". For verbs that may not be found in a standard dictionary, those ending with the past tense suffix -ed should correlate with a common noun or verb after removal of that suffix. Similarly, a prefix of de- should mean an opposite, a negation or a removal of whatever verb follows. For still incomprehensible terminology, please notify me on talk page.
