Hello, I'm Dario. I am an Italian transplant in San Francisco.
My Wikipedia contributions
I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2004 and I'm an avid Wikidata contributor. As an open knowledge and open science advocate as well as a TeX-addict, you may occasionally find me edit articles on open access and digital typography, but most of my contributions to English Wikipedia are about local history and architecture (see for example: Smithfield, London ), science (Planet Nine ) or current events (2014 South Napa earthquake, 2016 Central Italy earthquake, October 2016 Dyn cyberattack). I also care a lot about Wikipedia citations and verifiability. Random love signals are filed here .
My work at Wikimedia
I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2011 as a full-time researcher. In 2013 I took the lead of the Research and Data team and as of 2015 I run the Foundation's Research department. Until early 2012 I helped coordinate Wikimedia's research outreach and research-related policies via the Research Committee and I co-authored the Wikimedia Foundation's Open Access policy in 2015. Prior to joining the Wikimedia Foundation I held research and teaching positions at Sciences Po, the University of Surrey and University College London. I hold an MSc and PhD in cognitive science from the School for Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS), an MA in philosophy of science from the University of Pisa and a licenza from Scuola Normale Superiore.
