Introducción
Esta sección será traducida. (150 palabras como máximo)
Quiero aportar mi experiencia personal y de Wikimedia a la Junta Directiva de la WMF en un momento de cambio, con la implementación de la estrategia del movimiento y el próximo Consejo Global. Quiero que la WMF colabore más en la "manera wiki", con una mejor asistencia técnica y herramientas para apoyar el conocimiento libre multilingüe en todos los proyectos de Wikimedia. También quiero que la WMF trabaje mejor con los afiliados para que Wikimedia crezca significativamente, en particular en el sur global.

He sido un editor de Wikimedia desde 2005, con contribuciones a través de Wikipedia, Wikidata, Commons, Wikisource, y más, tanto a mano como con herramientas automatizadas y semiautomatizadas. En el aspecto organizativo, cofundé Wikimedia UK y soy miembro de Wiki Movimento Brasil. Estuve en el Comité de Difusión de Fondos durante cuatro años, y actualmente soy miembro del comité regional de subvenciones. De día soy radioastrónomo, con sede en Tenerife, España (anteriormente trabajé en el Reino Unido y Brasil).

Contribuciones a los proyectos Wikimedia, pertenencia a organizaciones o afiliados de Wikimedia, actividades como organizador del movimiento Wikimedia o participación en una organización aliada del movimiento Wikimedia.

I've made over 400,000 edits, mostly to Wikidata, Commons, and English Wikipedia, as well as to English Wikisource, Meta, and others. I am an admin on the first three. I operate Pi bot, which has made nearly 10 million edits, mostly on Wikidata and Commons. I created the multilingual Wikidata infobox that is used in nearly 4 million Commons categories. I co-founded Wikimedia UK and was a trustee for its first 5 years as it established and became a charity: I am now an honorary member. I have been part of Wiki Movimento Brasil since 2019 (informally since 2016).

I have gained a lot of experience with organisational strategy and management work through the Wikimedia movement since 2008. I was a Trustee of Wikimedia UK for 5 years (2008–2013, including as Chair, Secretary, and Membership Secretary), I served on the Funds Dissemination Committee for four years on its inaugural committee in 2012–14, and a returning term in 2015–17. I am currently on the Northern and Western Europe grants committee since 2021. I understand and work to support the governance needs of organisations across the Wikimedia movement, and want to bring this experience and viewpoint to WMF in a time of Wikimedia organisational change with the Global Council.

I am an experienced developer through my day job as a radio astronomer, which includes scientific analysis of large (TB+) datasets through self-written software packages. I understand software development processes at a practical level, focused on implementing them to solve specific problems.

Experiencias vividas en el mundo. Nos interesa especialmente leer sobre las experiencias vividas en las regiones de África, Asia Meridional, Asia Oriental y Sudeste Asiático y el Pacífico, y América Latina y el Caribe. Creemos que la experiencia en estas regiones podría ayudar a ampliar la capacidad de la junta para cumplir el objetivo de la estrategia del movimiento de una participación más equitativa, aunque reconocemos que otras experiencias también pueden aportar contribuciones importantes.

I was lucky enough to be born in the UK, and grew up in the north of England. After studying astronomy up to the PhD level (thanks to a student loan and a PhD studentship), and working in a postdoctoral position in the UK, I moved to São Paulo, Brasil, in 2016 to work on a new telescope project there as a jovem pesquisador. My experiences there included living in one of the largest cities in the world, and one of the most economically divided, as well as visiting remote parts of Paraíba to find a radio quiet zone for a new radio telescope. In 2019 I moved to Tenerife, part of the Canary Islands - a Spanish region off the coast of Africa - to work on telescope projects at Teide Observatory.

Through astronomy, I regularly work with scientists from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds. I also supervise both astronomy and Wikimedia students from across the world, whenever I can. This includes improving both gender and geographical diversity through the students I mentor.

There is a huge opportunity for Wikimedia to grow significantly in the global south, linked to the movement strategy, which requires decentralisation of power from WMF and increased support (resources, growing leadership capacity) through the Wikimedia affiliates. I would like to build on my expertise from the grants committees and lived experience from Brasil to help WMF accomplish this.

Fluidez cultural y lingüística con regiones e idiomas adicionales a tu región e idioma nativo. La conciencia intercultural ayuda a tender puentes en nuestra comunidad multicultural.
(250 palabras como máximo)
Learning new languages and cultures is not easy. While in Brasil, I learned some Portuguese, and explored the culture and country, particularly with other Wikimedians from Wiki Movimento Brasil. I've tried to document part of this through the articles on, and tens of thousands of photos of, Brazil that I've shared to the Wikimedia projects. In Tenerife, I am learning Spanish, and also exploring and documenting the local history and culture - although Tenerife has already been quite well documented, particularly on the Spanish Wikipedia, less so on the English Wikipedia. Whenever I have visited another country for work, wiki, or tourism, I always take my camera - not for the usual tourist photos, but to document its history via Wikimedia.

I also try to support multilingual knowledge through Wikidata. This is best demonstrated through the Wikidata Infobox in Commons categories, which I created to be able to better understand the local history in Brasil that I was photographing, and is now one of the biggest multilingual uses of Wikidata in the Wikimedia projects outside of Wikidata itself. I would like to see the WMF make more use of such multilingual opportunities, particularly through the Wikimedia sister projects.

Experiencia como defensor de la creación de espacios seguros y colaborativos para todas las personas y/o experiencia en situaciones o contextos de censura, represión u otros ataques a los derechos humanos.

Safe and collaborative spaces are really important. While I do not have experience with creating them, I support and encourage them as much as I can. I have also seen the after-effects of dictatorships and censorship in both Brasil and Spain, although I have not experienced it directly: the best I can do is to help document this and hope it doesn't happen again in the future.
Experiencia en relación con (o como miembro de, en la medida que decidas compartir) un grupo que se ha enfrentado a la discriminación histórica y a la infrarrepresentación en las estructuras de poder (incluyendo, pero sin limitarse a ello, la casta, la raza, la etnia, el color, el origen nacional, la nacionalidad, la identidad de género, la expresión de género, la orientación sexual, la edad, la religión, la lengua, la cultura, la educación, las capacidades, los ingresos y el entorno).
(250 palabras como máximo)
I can't claim experience here beyond trying to support such groups and individuals whenever I meet them. Both Wikimedia and astronomy (and physics in general) have huge issues with under-representation, and I try to help improve that through supervising students, doing outreach work, and providing general support wherever I can.
