Legal Intern, Wikimedia Foundation

About me

I have been a follower of Wikimedia projects for years, so I am very excited to join the Legal and Community Advocacy team this summer as a Legal Intern. Before the Wikimedia Foundation, I worked for Google in the Bay Area and London. I am currently focused on the effect of diverse international laws on global organizations. Through my work at the Wikimedia Foundation, I hope to contribute to the mission of making useful information available over the Internet.

I received a BA in Economics and History from the University of California, Berkeley and I am currently a student at Harvard Law School.

My work

In my role, I support the Office of the General Counsel as we address all legal matters related to the Foundation and its projects.

You can read more about our initiatives here and here.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try 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. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
