I'm an astrophysics PhD student in the UK. On Wikipedia my article edits are primarily to video game and scientist biography articles, you can find a list of the articles I've created or done any major work on below. Besides those topics I edit assorted articles which take my interest. As an admin I tend to work at AfD, CSD, and on Edit Filters. I am also partnerships coordinator for The Wikipedia Library, for which I may edit from Samwalton9 (WMF).
If you want to ask me a question or otherwise speak to me please feel free to post on my talk page. If you think there is an obvious (policy based!) reason to revert an admin action I've taken then go ahead - don't feel required to notify me first, just let me know if you've done so.
I have access to a number of libraries (including University libraries) around the Liverpool area, feel free to ask if you'd like me to find something for you.
I have some alternative accounts; User:Samwalton9TWA, User:Samwalton9Testing, User:SamWaltonTest&, and User:Samwalton9API which I use(d) for various testing purposes, and a Doppelgänger account User:Sam Walton.
I have some thoughts on Wikipedia's IRC help channel which I'm writing up here and would be interested in your opinions on. I've written up a guide on how to set up an IRC client for helping in the help channel, see here.
