I'm Ben, a computational biology PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. My main areas of interest are molecular biology, machine learning and computer science, but I primarily edit biological articles. I genuinely believe English Wikipedia, with its 5,994,683 (and counting) articles, is the best thing to have come of the internet to date, and I wish I had more time to contribute to the project.
I'm also interested in helping to increase the participation of scientists and academics in Wikimedia projects, and to this end I helped run my first Wikipedia tutorial at the 2014 ISMB conference. As of 2015 I'm an accredited Wikimedia UK trainer and therefore am able to assist with Wikimedia events on request.
I publish the R code and data sources of graphical figures I create here; if you have a dataset you'd like visualised for use on any Wikimedia project, I'd be happy to put something together. Occasionally I'll write something Wikipedia-related on my blog.
