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.

As an enthusiast of continuous education and lifelong learning, I have achieved an MBA, M.A. (International Economics) and M.A. (International Business). Physically, I am currently pursuing interests in calisthenics, Aikido and Kenjutsu.

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. We are also the point of contact for commercial partners in their linked open data projects with Wikidata and Wikibase.

To learn more about the work of the data partnerships team at Wikimedia Deutschland, take a look at the Data Partnerships Model and our Joint Vision for Linked Open Data. To get in touch with us, email us at swe_partnerships@wikimedia.de.
