CE Research Training Program graduate and research intern at ARMoR under the Global Impact Placements program, working on cost-benefit analyses to help combat AMR. Currently exploring roles involving research distillation and quantitative analysis to improve decision-making e.g. applied prioritization research, previously supported by a FTXFF regrant. Previously spent 6 years doing data analytics, business intelligence and knowledge + project management in various industries (airlines, e-commerce) and departments (commercial, marketing), after majoring in physics at UCLA. Also collaborating on a local charity evaluation initiative with the moonshot aim of reorienting Malaysia's giving landscape towards effectiveness.
I first learned about effective altruism circa 2014 via A Modest Proposal, a polemic on using dead children as units of currency to force readers to grapple with the opportunity costs of subpar resource allocation under triage. I have never stopped thinking about it since.
