"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style"― Maya Angelou

About me

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in April of 2015. I previously passionately volunteered for the Couchsurfing community and later worked for the Trust and Safety Team, at Couchsurfing inc., where my focus was on member safety, long-term abuse mitigation and dispute resolution.

My work

I manage the Operations side of the Foundation's Trust and Safety team. In that capacity, I oversee the team's core work, which includes conduct investigations, event safety, new policy creation (related to user safety) and updating of existing policy, standardisation of internal processes, crisis and emergency management, assessment of abuse escalation potential, conflict resolution, mediation, database administration and project management.

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.

Contact me

I am best reached via email at: kalliope@wikimedia.org
Alternatively:

  • On-wiki: through my talk pages on the English and Greek language Wikipedia projects.
  • Freenode IRC: oxyacantha (though I'm not there often)
