About me

I originally hail from Bikaner, India and currently live in San Francisco Bay Area. Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I was a student researcher at the MIT Media Lab exploring how online platforms for learning could be made more peer-led, engaging, participatory and accessible to diverse populations. At the Media Lab, I contributed to the design, development, and research of Unhangout, a platform for running large-scale unconference style events online.

Before MIT, I was working as a software developer with a startup organization in India. As an undergrad, I was involved with the open source community GNOME and its educational project GCompris.

My work

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2016. Since June 2023, I have been part of the Languages and Content Growth department. I work with Language team to provide technical support to language communities and occasionally with Community Tech to coordinate their efforts in engaging volunteer developers in projects gathered via the Community Wishlist Survey.

Before this, I was on the Technical engagement team contributing to their efforts in running learning and knowledge-sharing initiatives for broader technical outreach, community, and capacity building. Occasionally, developing sample code to demonstrate best practices, tutorials to help explain technical concepts and tools to improve processes and workflows around developer support. This team got discontinued in 2022. Some past projects: Outreach programs (Google Summer of Code & Outreachy), Small wiki toolkits, Hackathons, Toolhub, MediaWiki Action API docs and Tech swag program.

Here is a complete list of my tasks on Phabricator: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/people/tasks/8466/.
