Washington: Swedish physicist Sverker Johansson reportedly adds more than 10,000 articles to Wikipedia every day, and has contributed 2.7 million articles which constitutes for 8.5 percent of Wikipedia.
Johansson works as an administrator, and has degrees in linguistics, civil engineering, economics and particle physics, The Verge reported.

He covers a wide range of articles on various topics such as bugs, beetles, and butterflies, and is reportedly particularly proud of his work highlighting towns in the Philippines.
