Netha Hussain is a researcher, medical doctor, blogger and Wikimedian. She has done exciting things like grooming kittens, listening to cardiac murmurs and riding bicycles. She'd work for any length of time on stuff that doesn't make any sense. The best discovery she had ever made was that Wikipedia is an editable space. Armed with this wonderful information, she went ahead and made a couple of edits only to fall in love with Wikipedia. Find her on Malayalam Wikipedia here. She keeps her Wikipedia to-do list here.

Netha Hussain (GU) is her alternate account affiliated with Gothenburg University where she is a PhD student.
