About me

Hello there! My name is Alan (he/him). I am a Partner Manager at Wikimedia Deutschland and I use this account for activities related to my role. Apart from my full-time role at Wikimedia Germany, I am passionate about building up the Wiki community, Open Government projects and promoting the linked open data web across the world, especially Singapore.

Prior to joining Wikimedia Deutschland, I was the Advisor to the Prime Minister of the Kyrgyz Republic (pro-bono) from 2019-2020.

My work

As a partner manager within the Software Communication team in the software development department at Wikimedia Deutschland, I work on data partnerships related to Wikidata and Wikibase. The data partnerships team works with a range of institutions from the GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives and museums), science, research and government sectors. We talk to partners about setting up their own Wikibase instance or contributing to Wikidata.

To learn more about the work of the data partnerships team at Wikimedia Deutschland, take a look at the Data Partnerships Model. To get in touch with us, email us at
