I’m an international security professional with experience conducting open source analysis, satellite imagery interpretation, and independent research, and I’m launching a new consulting organization, Earthnote! I’m really interested in applying my skills to the EA community and help to reduce existential threats to humanity, so let me know if I can help you/your org!

Fields of expertise and interest include:

  • Nuclear/CBRN risk, nonproliferation, and safeguards
  • Satellite imagery analysis
  • Space governance
  • Emerging technology
  • Existential risk and longtermism

As one example of my work, I was a consultant at the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) at the University of Cambridge, where I led a pilot project on tech company data center monitoring using satellite imagery. Using open source optical imagery, I identified key infrastructural and geographical attributes of these sites, writing a report to explain my findings and recommend next steps for analysis. This data could be harnessed as a basis for developing a future understanding of compute capabilities, energy usage, and policy creation.

I’ve had an extensive career working for the International Atomic Energy Agency, the US Department of Defense, the US laboratory system, Google, and academia/think tanks. I’m super excited to apply this expertise to EA-related projects and research. Please feel free to reach out with comments or inquiries any time!

This seems like an impressive set of capabilities, exciting to hear about the new org :)

Did CSER write more about your work for them anywhere? Interested to read more about it.

It was a fairly preliminary project and didn't result in any immediate publications, but if you DM or email me, I'd be happy to chat about some of my findings!
