About me

Hi there,
I'm a French citizen with multicultural indentity. My rural uprising in a forested area –shared by only 3% of European citizens– taught me to values education, wild life, and people.

My appetite for foreign cultures lead me into an exchange student year in Lukang, Taiwan, where I learnt Chinese language and culture, English, and multilingualism. My 20s were spent in France, Taiwan and India to acquire multiple diploma in History, Chinese studies, and Computer Science.

For the past 10 years I've been involved in higher education while active in language diversity revitalization via Wikimedia. I have expertise in open education, educational platform engineering, JavaScript, with a keen interest in expanding vocabulary resources. I'm currently Wikimedian en résidence.

My work

Since 2004, my journey as a devoted Wikimedian has seen me embracing diverse roles within the Wikimedia community. Drawing from my background in Chinese studies and e-learning, I've made substantial contributions, wearing hats as both an editor and a project coordinator.

My notable contribution includes overseeing the creation of 15,000+ images and maps, as well as shaping Wikipedia Cartographic guidelines through the creation and coordination of the Graphic Labs and Map workshops. My creation of the CJK Stroke Order Project and the Ancient Chinese Characters Project also led to the collective production of 15,000 more files. I've been pivotal to the creation and coordination of Wikimedia France's LinguaLibre.org, a rapid audio recording system which celebrated its 1,000,000th recording in 2023.

My Wikipedia contributions span diverse topics, with a strong emphasis on Chinese culture, contemporary social issues, and human rights. I've played lead roles, including in the 2020 Covid Task Force, and held administrative positions on Wikipedia FR and Commons. I am an active participant in real-life Wikimedia events, such as Wikimania ('07,'13,'14,'17,'18,'19,'21,'22,'23) and Hackathons.
