Introductory statement / Application summary.
This section to be translated. (150 word maximum)
Saya ingin membawa pengalaman hidup dan pengalaman di Wikimedia milik saya untuk membawa perubahan terhadap Dewan Pengawas WMF dengan penerapan strategi gerakan dan Dewan Global yang akan datang. Saya ingin melihat WMF lebih banyak berkolaborasi di dalam proyek-proyek wiki dengan 'cara wiki', dengan dukungan teknis yang lebih baik dan alat untuk mendukung pengetahuan bebas dalam beberapa bahasa meliputi semua proyek Wikimedia. Saya juga ingin WMF bekerja lebih baik dengan mitra lokal untuk mengembangkan Wikimedia dengan signifikan, terutama di wilayah Global South.

Saya telah menjadi editor Wikimedia sejak tahun 2005 dengan berkontribusi pada proyek Wikipedia, Wikidata, Commons, Wikisource, dan banyak lagi, baik secara manual maupun dengan alat otomatis dan semi-otomatis. Dari segi organisasi, saya ikut mendirikan Wikimedia UK dan saya merupakan anggota Wiki Movimento Brasil. Saya duduk dalam Komite Penyaluran Dana selama empat tahun, dan kini saya merupakan anggota Komite Hibah Regional. Sehari-hari, saya adalah seorang pakar astronomi radio yang bekerja di Tenerife, Spanyol (sebelum ini bekerja di Britania Raya dan Brasil).

Kontribusi pada proyek Wikimedia, keanggotaan dalam organisasi atau mitra lokal Wikimedia, kegiatan sebagai penyelenggara gerakan Wikimedia, atau partisipasi dengan organisasi yang selaras dengan visi gerakan 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).

  • Strategi dan manajemen organisasi

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.

Pengalaman di dunia nyata. Kami sangat tertarik untuk membaca tentang pengalaman hidup di wilayah Afrika, Asia Selatan, Asia Timur , Asia Tenggara & Pasifik, serta Amerika Latin & Karibia. Kami percaya bahwa pengalaman di wilayah ini dapat membantu memperluas kemampuan Dewan untuk memenuhi tujuan Strategi Gerakan dalam mencapai partisipasi yang lebih adil, meskipun kami menyadari bahwa pengalaman lain juga dapat memberikan kontribusi yang bersifat penting.

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.

Kefasihan budaya dan bahasa dari wilayah dan bahasa tambahan selain wilayah dan bahasa asli Anda. Kesadaran antarbudaya dapat membantu membangun "jembatan" dalam komunitas kita yang memiliki beragam budaya.

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.

Pengalaman sebagai aktivis yang menciptakan ruang yang aman dan kolaboratif untuk semua dan/atau pengalaman dalam situasi atau konteks penyensoran, represi, atau serangan lain terhadap hak asasi manusia.

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.
Pengalaman sehubungan dengan (atau sebagai anggota, sejauh Anda memilih untuk berbagi) kelompok yang telah menghadapi diskriminasi historis dan kurang terwakili dalam struktur kekuasaan (termasuk namun tidak terbatas pada kasta, ras, etnis, warna kulit, asal kebangsaan, kebangsaan , identitas gender, ekspresi gender, orientasi seksual, usia, agama, bahasa, budaya, pendidikan, kemampuan, pendapatan dan lingkungan).

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.
