I am a Wikimedian since 2011, mostly active on the Odia-language Wikimedia projects like the Odia Wikipedia, Wikisource and Wiktionary, Commons, and here on Meta. I have worked for the Wikimedia Foundation in the past in two terms -- first during 2012 for the India Program, and briefly during 2016, and over four years at the Foundation's affiliate in India the Centre for Internet and Society.
I was quite actively involved in India's first GLAM project at the National Handicrafts and Handlooms Museum, New Delhi, and later became part of the OpenGLAM working group. I have been working on building a methodology called the Guerrilla GLAM.
The info below is for my earlier work at the Centre for Internet and Society. I resigned from this position towards the end of 2016.
I work as a Programme Officer for Community and Program Support, Access To Knowledge for Centre for Internet and Society. I have a background in Business development in Corporate Communications. My personal username is found here.
