I'm Zeromonk (Alice) and I'm a digital editor and Wikimedian in Residence (WiR) at Wellcome Collection. The project page for the Wellcome-Wiki side of my work is located here: Wikipedia:GLAM/Wellcome. Please get in touch on my talk page or via email if you are interested in getting involved in workshops or events, or if you're interested in using Wellcome content - there's loads already online, such as a huge number of digitised images.

I'm also a historian interested in modern history, and the history of science, technology & medicine. In 2016 I finished a PhD in History at the University of Kent. My thesis examined the wartime work that psychiatrists (mostly drawn from the Tavistock Clinic) conducted for the British Army. In the wiki-spirit of open knowledge and open access, my thesis is freely available from the Kent Academic Repository and can be found in the British Library EThOS catalogue.

Whilst I was doing the PhD, I also taught English to secondary school students at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form, taught History undergraduates at the University of Kent, did picture research for a book about frogs, and worked in a bar (though not all at the same time).
