This is not Anthere's page; this is a page about her. There is a difference. As any wiki page, one may freely edit it. Anthere, naturally, may revert it as well.
Hello, my real name is Florence Nibart-Devouard
. I served on the board of Wikimedia Foundation
as the chair of the board until July 2008.
. I also co-funded Wikimedia France in 2004 and was on its board for several years. I joined the Wikipedia adventure in February 2002, first anonymously, then under the pseudonym Anthere
I was born in Versailles (France). I grew up in Grenoble, and have been living since then in several French cities, as well as Antwerpen in Belgium and Tempe in Arizona.
I am an engineer in Agronomy (ENSAIA) and also hold a DEA in Genetics and biotechnologies (INPL). I have been working in public research, first in flower plant genetic improvement, and second in microbiology to study the feasability of polluted soil bioremediation. For 6 additional years, I worked in a French firm to conceive decision-making tools in sustainable agriculture. In 2008, I decided to become a freelancer and have been ever since then. My main activity as such is to be Manager of International Projects.
I am 48, and live in Marseille (L'Estaque, a beautiful place...), France, with my husband Bertrand and my three children.
My activity around here as of today (July 2016), I created and organise the photographic contests c:Commons:Wiki Loves Africa.
