My Wikipedia contributions
I have been contributing to Wikipedia since 2004. As an open source 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 are about London in history and architecture (see for example: Smithfield, London ). Random love signals are filed here .
My work at Wikimedia
I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2011 as a full-time researcher with the Strategy team. 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 Foundation I was a postdoctoral fellow at University College London and at the University of Surrey in the UK. I hold a PhD in cognitive science from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales.
The following is a list of projects that I conducted or I have been significantly involved in:
- Editor engagement experiments
- EventLogging: A tool for client and server-side event logging and collaborative data modeling.
- UserMetrics: A platform to extract user activity metrics and cohort analysis.
- data analysis for the Article feedback project;

- coordinating the Wikimedia Research Committee, Wikimedia's research policy-making body;
