    About me

    I find the concept of data visualisation very empowering. For me, portraying and visualising seemingly bland and vague data and eventually to make it meaningful and useful has a childlike fascination to it.

    I love reading about astronomy and history. You might find me tracing out constellations or attempting to spot messier objects in the night sky.

    My work

    I will be designing and developing general purpose tools which will help the Communications team to generate insightful data visualisations using Wikimedia and Wikipedia data which could be shared internally / externally. I also help the Communications team with interactive content for blog stories.

    Disclaimer: I work for the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I intend to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
