I highly contributed in the standardisation of Wikiprojects, infoboxes, templates etc. (see: WPBiography watch, Infoboxes, WikiProjects, WikiProject stats, Category:Wikipedia maintenance categories sorted by month)

A part of my scientitic work can be found at researchgate and Academia. I have published some of my lectures under GFDL. See more here.

Notes /sandbox

I support these essays: Wikipedia:Redirects for discussion/Redirects from foreign languages, Wikipedia:Laws of hats.

March 9, 2012 Hypothesis: Due to expansion of Wikipedia all pages will end up having a hatnote to a dab page. At least all pages without parentheses in their title.

A list of my activities in more detail follows.
