About me

I originally hail from Bikaner, India and currently live in San Francisco Bay Area. Before joining the Wikimedia Foundation, I was a student researcher at the MIT Media Lab exploring how online platforms for learning could be made more peer-led, engaging, participatory and accessible to diverse populations. At the Media Lab, I contributed to the design, development, and research of Unhangout, a platform for running large-scale unconference style events online.

Before MIT, I was working as a software developer with a startup organization in India. As an undergrad, I was involved with the open source community GNOME and its educational project GCompris.

My work

I joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2016. I contribute to the Technical engagement team's efforts in running learning and knowledge-sharing initiatives for technical outreach, community, and capacity building.

Some current projects: Outreach programs, Small wiki toolkits, Wikimedia tech swag program. Some past projects: Toolhub and MediaWiki Action API documentation improvements.

Here is a complete list of my tasks on Phabricator:
