About meEdit

Hi, I'm Patient Zero! I am a twenty-something undergraduate law student and aspiring academic from the UK. I am currently undertaking my bachelor’s degree at Aberystwyth University, after which I’ll be studying for an MSc in Criminology, followed by a PhD. Please note, however, that I do not give out legal advice online.

It appears you have stumbled across my user page; in which case, nice to meet you! Or, maybe we have already met, and you’d like to talk to me about something, in which case feel free to leave a message at my talk page.

I created my Wikipedia account in January 2014, and my work here mainly comprises reverting vandalism using Twinkle and Huggle, new page patrolling, and tagging pages for deletion using the CSD criteria.

I occasionally edit from my public account, Patient Zero (Public). I also have multiple doppelganger accounts, all of which were created to avoid impersonation by vandals.
