About me

Hi! I'm Mike, currently based in Philadelphia. At the Foundation, I draw on my background in sociolinguistics and applied linguistics to use methodologies like discourse analysis, survey design, and interview methods to investigate all sorts of on-Wiki phenomena, which in turn are usually very accessible to linguistic analysis.

Outside of work, I'm interested in learning languages, antkeeping, and cooking!

My work

I'm a Lead Design Researcher at the Wikimedia Foundation.
