I coordinate the Swedish part of the bilateral collaborations between the Swedish International Development and cooperation Agency (Sida) and AHRI (Armauer Hansen Research Institute) and Addis Abeba University in Ethiopia, and between Sida and the Royal University of Phnom Penh in Cambodia.
I'm also hired at the Uppsala University library to educate researchers in how to contribute to Wikipedia as a part of their Science outreach, but also support researchers at other Swedish universities to use Wikipedia for Science outreach. Over the years my work on Wikipedia have been funded by the Swedish Research Council, the Strategic Foundation, the Research council Formas and the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation.
I am an Associate Professor in Biology and conduct research at the department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Uppsala University focusing on bacteria in insects, in particular malaria mosquitoes and on viruses in silkmoths. My publications as listed in ORCID are found here
I am since 2022 a board member of Wikimedia Sverige where I represent Academia. I live in Uppsala.
I have also an account [Olle Terenius (SLU)], which was created when I was at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).
