Daniel Mietchen is a biophysicist interested in integrating research workflows with the World Wide Web, particularly through open licensing, open standards, public version histories, and forkability. With research activities spanning from the subcellular to the organismic level, from fossils to developing embryos and from insect larvae to elephants, he has experienced multiple shades of the research cycle and a variety of approaches to collaboration and sharing in research contexts. He has also been contributing to Wikipedia and its sister projects for more than a decade and is actively engaged in increasing the interactions between the Wikimedia and research communities.
