FTX Future Fund exploratory grantee based in Kuala Lumpur, spending a year trying to find an EA-related job. 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.
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 assessment of altruistic impact, and improving decision-making based on that: estimation of value, cost-effectiveness analysis, local priorities research, etc.
