About me

Prior to working for the WMF I specialised in research on tackling online disinformation and extremism. I worked as part of a team advising multiple social media platforms on how best to build policies countering disinformation campaigns, particularly around elections and medical issues.

My work

At the WMF I research how disinformation affects Wikipedia projects so that we can best understand how to support Wikipedia communities in countering the threat of disinformation campaigns.

However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
