Biography

I started editing Wikipedia ten years ago this autumn, cut way back a few years ago, and only became involved with the chapter after I initiated a memorial editathon for Dr Adrianne Wadewitz in May. I ended up volunteering for Wikimania, and one thing led to another. My background is in lecturing. I have an MBA and spent two years as a projects manager. In my spare time I attempt to resuscitate Mary Wollstonecraft.

My work


My role is to address the systemic bias in Wikipedia and related projects.

  • Encourage more women to start to edit, and to continue editing
  • Improve the coverage of women in Wikipedia
  • Specifically, run editathons around Ada Lovelace Day
