  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - Although early-career, they have been very proactive in getting involved in student research publishing. Their work across a number of open projects may also give useful insights. It will also be good to have input from someone with an engineering background.

    • Note: the applicant has expressed interest in alternatively being an associate editor. If others think this would be more appropriate, however in this case I'm open to this, I think the Mozilla experience will be useful in board discussions. T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 01:24, 10 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Great candidate, but given the early career stage, I am leaning toward supporting the application as an associate editor instead. Mstefan (discusscontribs) 13:43, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

Based on consensus here and at associate editor application - Result: Accepted as associate editor.
