I'll be attending EAGxPhilippines and the Community Builders in Asia Retreat this October, come say hi :)
Open Philanthropy (formerly FTX Future Fund) re-grantee from Kuala Lumpur, spending a year doing some career exploration, and just accepted into Charity Entrepreneurship's new Research Training Program. Previously I spent 6 years doing data analytics, business intelligence and knowledge + project management in various industries (airlines, ecommerce) and departments (commercial, marketing), after majoring in physics at UCLA. Previously at Trajan House in Oxford and the Mexico EA Fellowship in Mexico City.
I've been at the periphery of EA for a long time; my introduction to it in 2014 was via the dead children as unit of currency essay, I started donating shortly thereafter, and I've been "soft-selling" basic EA ideas for years. But I only started actively participating in the community in 2021, when I joined EA Malaysia. Given my career background it perhaps makes sense that my interests center around improving decision-making via better value quantification, distillation and communication, and collaboration, including but not limited to cost-effectiveness analysis, local priorities research, etc.
I'd love to get help with my career exploration:
Do reach out if you're interested to talk about, or collaborate on,
Not strictly help, but if you just want to talk about random topics I'm interested as well :) I've written short- to mid-length answers and posts on a wide variety of topics on Quora, and longform explainers on Substack, although strictly speaking I am an expert in none of them; caveat lector!
