The point is in life, in life alone—in discovering it, constantly and eternally, and not at all in the discovery itself! — Ippolit Terentyev in The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky (1869) purge

About me

I am Nodir from Kyrgyzstan. Currently I am a PhD student in the Global Development Studies program at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada.

I received a Specialist Diploma in management (2011) from the Alatoo International University in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and a Master of Arts degree in economic policy (2013) from Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. I have ten years' experience in the development aid sector, having worked for the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), ACTED, and Family Health International 360 (FHI 360).

When I'm not editing, you are likely to find me playing guitar (and sharing what I learn with others), watching my favorite movies and shows (and compiling film and TV show vocabularies for learners of English), or reading books.

My work

I have been contributing to Wikimedia projects since 2009. I am primarily active on the English, Russian, Turkish, and Uzbek Wikipedias, as well as on Wikidata and Wikimedia Commons.

In 2020, I founded the Wikimedians of the Uzbek Language User Group. Since 2022 I have served as a member of the CEE and Central Asia Committee.

I established Uzbek Wikipedia's Telegram, X (formerly Twitter), and YouTube pages and also co-administer its Facebook page. For the YouTube channel I have recorded professionally edited video lessons on contributing to wiki projects.
