About me

Hello! I recently began as Senior Human Rights Advocacy Manager at the Wikimedia Foundation in October of 2021. In this role, I work to advance the Foundation's values and policy positions around crucial issues including freedom of expression, access to knowledge, privacy, and censorship online while defending knowledge as a human right.

My work

I lead the Foundation's work implementing our Human Rights Policy and carrying out human rights due diligence across projects and platforms.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. 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.
