Hello! I'm Dorothy. I am a current PhD student in Communication at UC San Diego. I started editing Wikipedia around 2012. I edit Wikipedia articles on topics in the realms of art, philosophy, cultural theory, literature, archives, labor, identity, and health. I am the former Wikipedian-in-Residence at the Metropolitan New York Library Council. I was a member of Wikimedia NYC and a Program Officer at WikiConference USA 2014.
