Hi! I'm Maia.

Primary Wikipedia interest is adding and editing information on notable women, especially those in the STEM fields.

Former co-leader of the New England Wikimedians user group. Attendee of the Ada Initiative's AdaCamp 2012 in Washington, D.C.

As of 2014, I work in the news office of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While I edit Wikipedia strictly on my own time, in the interest of transparency I will attempt to be as clear as possible about my connections with any MIT-related content edits I make henceforth. I will do this mainly by leaving messages on talk pages of any relevant articles declaring my status as an MIT employee and representative of the Institute's publicity arm. However, as a general rule I plan not to make substantial edits on articles relating to active members of the MIT community.
