|I am taking a Wikibreak/leave of absence from pretty much everything except medical school until the end of the month. If you need urgent assistance about something with ArbCom, AffCom, Oversight, NIOSH, women scientists, or really anything else, please contact one of my lovely colleagues. I'll be back October 1, hopefully with awesome grades on this set of giant scary exams.|
|I am the Wikipedian in Residence for NIOSH. This is my personal account. For my WIR account, see User:Emily Temple-Wood (NIOSH). (If I haven't edited from this account in a few days, check that one. I'm probably just doing lots of interesting OSH stuff. Or check sister projects.)|
Hi! I'm Emily Temple-Wood, known as Keilana around here. (Just because I get asked sometimes, it's pronounced "Kay-lah-nah" or "Kay", not "Key".) I've been around the project since April 2007, and came back from a decently long hiatus in 2012. I'm an administrator—I passed RfA in November 2007 and January 2008—but I don't use the tools much anymore. I also have the oversight tool and am part of the Arbitration Committee. I have developed a kit for running anti-systemic bias workshops at institutions and am always looking for feedback and/or thoughts from people who have used it! I write mainly about women scientists and women's health, through WikiProject Women Scientists and WikiProject Women's Health. Systemic bias threatens our projects in a very real, imminent way. I've written some articles, on history, astronomy, women scientists, medicine, and some other stuff that I've forgotten. (Barbara McClintock was super cool tho, go read about her instead of me.)
In real life, I have a bachelor's degree in molecular biology from Loyola University Chicago, and am a first-year medical student at Midwestern University. I'm also a medical assistant. My research during undergrad was in Drosophila developmental biology, focusing on gonadal and nervous system morphogenesis.
