Active Wikipedian since 2006 editing under the username Lokal_Profil. Living in Scotland 2003-2013 where I completed a PhD in theoretical physics. Wikipedian Developer in Residence at the Swedish National Heritage Board (Riksantikvarieämbetet) during the second half of 2012. I've also been involved in other projects such as Wiki Loves Monuments.
Employed by Wikimedia Sverige since 2013. I first started working as GLAM-technician which later evolved into a role as Developer and Senior developer. Since 2017 I work as Chief Operating Officer.
At Wikimedia Sverige I've developed offentligkonst.se an open database for public art, a tool which allows Europeana to import images from Wikimedia Commons, performed batch uploads of images and data and more. All source code developed for Wikimedia Sverige is open source and can, mostly, be found at github.com/lokal-profil/.
