Hi! I'm Guillaume Paumier, a French Wikimedian mainly active on the French-language Wikipedia, Commons and meta.
I've been serving the Wikimedia community as a volunteer since 2005 in almost every possible role, from writing Wikipedia articles to giving presentations, doing crosswiki service work, helping small wikis deal with vandalism, creating documents, operating a bot, organizing events, translating texts and software, administering the French Wikimedia chapter, co-authoring a book on Wikipedia, co-leading the Volunteer response team, and taking pictures for Wikimedia.
I completed my Ph.D. in the field of labs-on-chips and microfluidics for analytical chemistry in November 2008.
I am currently working for the Wikimedia Foundation as a Principal Program Manager in the Advancement department. Before that, I worked as Product Manager for the Multimedia usability project (2009–2010), as Technical Communications Manager (2011–2014) and as Senior Analyst (2014–2017). In 2017, I was one of the lead architects of the Movement strategy process.
