Indeed, although as I understand it he's going to be independent of the
actual Research  Data team.

 Thanks. If I understand correctly and this means we'll see more Tilman in
 research-y stuff, without reducing WMF transparency, it's great!

 I have a number of questions though, see

Hi all,

It’s my pleasure to announce that Tilman Bayer is joining the Foundation’s
Product  Strategy department as Senior Analyst. I would like to thank
Katherine Maher for supporting and helping to prepare this move from the
Communications department.

Tilman has been working with us since July 2011, and has been a Wikipedian
since 2003. He is leading the development of the organization’s new
quarterly report, and its integration with the quarterly review process. In
his role in Communications, he has already coordinated our reports in their
previous monthly format, and has kept detailed public minutes for the
majority of quarterly reviews at WMF. He will continue to do so.

He will ensure we not only continually refine and improve the quarterly
goalsetting, review and reporting processes, but can also look for
opportunities to highlight lessons learned - successes and failures -
across the organization and the Wikimedia communities, so these can
meaningfully inform our strategy.

In addition, Tilman will bring his many years of experience as a volunteer
and his insight into the many complexities and intricacies of the Wikimedia
universe to bear with product-related research and analysis questions,
supporting Product Managers and other team members as we dig into hard
problems that benefit from his expertise, e.g. simplification of templates,
translation tools, cross-wiki messaging tools, mathematics editing, etc.

Tilman was previously responsible for many day-to-day communications
responsibilities and supported or led key communications initiatives. These
responsibilities will be transitioned to other Communications team members,
including Fabrice Florin who is joining the team for 6 months (separate
announcement to follow).

Please join me in congratulating Tilman to this new role. Tilman - thank
you for taking this on; I look forward to continuing our work together!

Sincerely,

Erik
