Mike Peel. I'm a postdoctoral researcher at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, which is part of the University of Manchester. I work on the Planck satellite and the C-Band All Sky Survey. I co- founded Wikimedia UK in 2008, and I served on its Board of Trustees until 2013. I facilitated the creation of the first Wikipedian in Residence, and I organised the first Wikipedia Editathon. I was a member of the Wikimedia Foundation's Funds Dissemination Committee from 2012 to 2014. I supervised two summer students working on Wikipedia's science articles in 2014. My personal website is at MikePeel.net.
English Wikipedia administrator who is open to recall. I have multiple user pages: see Meta for my Wikimedia organisation involvement, and Wikimedia Commons for my photographic contributions.

own them, but I follow their development closely as I'm interested in learning more about their subjects, and I want to make sure that they continue to be accurate and well-referenced.
