  • From August 2020 to July 2022 (Phase 1) and from August 2022 to July 2024 (Phase 2) I am being paid to work on a communication project regarding SDGs 6, 13 and 14. This means that most of my edits during that time (but not all) fall under that funded project. This project is administered by Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) and funded by Formas (a Swedish government research council for sustainable development and a state authority under the Swedish Ministry of the Environment). As part of this project I work on improving Wikipedia articles that have a relationship to three Sustainable Development Goals: SDG 6, SDG 13, SDG 14 in Phase 1 and articles in connection with SDG 13 in Phase 2. I manage the potential conflict of interest by ensuring the following:
    • I always retain my own editorial judgement. If you disagree with any of my edits, please feel free to take it up on my talk page or the article's talk page. To see how SEI's goals and Formas' goals align with those of the Wikimedia movement please see their websites.
    • I solicit contributions of content to Wikipedia and thus staff time from a number of organisations and individuals. My wish to retain positive relationships with these organisations is not a conflict of interest.
    • When I am editing Wikipedia as part of my professional duties, I always strive to strictly abide by Wikipedia's accepted practices on conflicts of interest, neutrality, and notability. I will always work in the best interest of Wikipedia, because that's what I believe in and it's also is in line with the missions of those organisations who have funded my time so far (philanthropic foundations, NGOs, government entities).

About me[edit]

I started Wikipedia editing in October 2014 after being inspired by the work of James Heilman with WikiProject Medicine. To find out more about my work on Wikipedia, please look at my contributions. My background is in process engineering. I currently live in Germany. I am a freelancer and work for myself since 2012. I am a female Wikipedian and am interested in reducing gender bias on Wikipedia.

Some of my Wikipedia milestones and projects (most recent first):

  • To search for something inside of the Wikipedia system (i.e. the "internal" pages), simply add "WP:" before your search term in the search box. Example: If you put "WP:Manual of Style" into the search box of Wikipedia, it will take you to the internal Manual of Style pages of Wikipedia.
  • Twinkle is a popular JavaScript Wikipedia gadget that gives autoconfirmed registered users many extra options to assist them in common Wikipedia maintenance tasks and to help them deal with acts of vandalism or unconstructive edits.

To edit the template for my Welcome note:,,
  • By default, pages in the Wikipedia: namespace (as well as some others) only use source editing and only show the source editor. You can 'force' the visual editor by appending ?veaction=edit to the end of the URL.
  • When using material from a CC-BY licensed publication add this to the reference: [[File:CC-BY icon.svg|50px]] Text was copied from this source, which is available under a [ Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License].


Open access contribution[edit]

We can indicate the attribution in an inline citation as in the following:

  • [[File:CC-BY icon.svg|50px]] Text was copied from this source, which is available under a [ Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License]</ref>
So the trick is just to enclose it within the usual <ref></ref> tags, and then it becomes clear which source corresponds to each sentence in the article.

Contact me[edit]

You can send me an e-mail via Wikipedia like this: Special:EmailUser/EMsmile. If you have a gripe to settle with me, something that you think I have done wrong, something that annoyed you terribly, or some constructive criticism please consider using direct e-mail as it might help to clarify or defuse the situation more efficiently than writing publicly on an article's talk page might. Just something to think about in the interest of keeping things positive and less confrontational.
