Chief Research Officer

The role of the Chief Research Officer was to study Wikimedia's content, technology and community, to identify and prioritize the needs of the individual Wikimedia projects, to make recommendations for targeted development, to guide and motivate outside developers, to assist in the study of new project proposals, and to collaborate with researchers who are not part of the Wikimedia community.

The position was then renamed Chief Research Coordinator and Greg Maxwell was appointed.
